51 Palm Tree Textures!

April 19, 2011

Our palm tree texture package is complete! We’ve been working on this bad boy for what seems like ages. 😉 Here’s a small little sample, checkout the actual product page for larger sample images. We’ll also be posting some free full-size samples in the near future!

For a week or so we’re running an introductory sale price of $49, after which it’ll be back up to $69.

We’re running a 50% off sale this week. All textures are half off.

Have a great week!

We already have a tropical texture package featuring many images from Hawaii. However, in the coming weeks we’re adding some new free textures via our blog. Let us know if you have any specific textures requests :-).

Stay posted and have a very happy holiday season!

Here are some free textures to use with:

  • renderings
  • Photoshop
  • whatever other project you’re working on :-).

These are free textures for your downloading pleasure. We hope these textures will be helpful to you…

(to see the full size version: click the image, then wait for the page to load and click the photo again for the full size 12MP image)

PS if you need higher quality landscape textures with full alpha channel masks, checkout out commercial textures. This month’s featured texture pack is: Shrubs and Grasses Texture Pack Vol 1. Or checkout our best selling tree textures package.

We just upgraded out website’s file downloading functionality. The new download function supports pause/resume as well as multiple connection downloads (like many download manager use).

We serve up a lot of big files and this new download functionality should really improve speed and reliability for our customers. This latest upgrade is one of the last technological hurdles left for perfecting the backend of our site.

Now we can focus on some of the remaining little things. Like getting our new textures packages from this past summer posted online, as well as tweaking our site and improving the UI.

Until next time…

Great Texture Summer!

July 29, 2008

We hope everyone out there is having a great summer!

Things are good here at NetRender: we have new textures to add to our existing packages, we also have some big improvements coming in the descriptions of our textures.

That’s about all the news for now 🙂

This weekend we may some significant improvements to our checkout process.

Specifically, we had been having some problems with our email server (hosted by Google) not immediately sending out purchase receipts. That has been fixed now.

We also streamlined the order confirmation messages themselves, making our texture product download links more prominently displayed (so once a customer purchases, it is easier for them to download their purchased products).

The final improvements were to our texture map descriptions, especially our Trees Vol 1 texture package.

Last month was our best month ever for sales and I hope that some of these new enhancements will make our site even more useful for our customers 🙂

Credit card security and safety is a top priority to many online shoppers. At NetRender we value our customers privacy and try to protect their data as much as possible.

We use a SSL certificate from GeoTrust and our credit card processing is done via Authorize.net, both of which are top companies in their respective industries. We also never store customer credit card information on our servers.

However, some of the non-critical content (mainly images) on our shopping cart pages has been served without SSL encryption. That meant that we weren’t getting the full gold “lock” displayed by internet explorer in the address bar, or the lock in the status bar of FireFox. Those icons signify a secure site.

Yesterday I improved our shopping cart code to make sure ALL content server on a https page was encrypted. Now we have a full secure “lock” displayed on all of our secure pages.

Though texture product pages can be viewed through a non-secure connection, once a customer is ready to checkout ALL credit card information submitted to our shopping cart is automatically encrypted.

We also now display the GeoTrust logo on our pages (here’s a sample Tree Texture Maps Page) and clicking on that logo will open a page where our customers can check the current status of our GeoTrust certificate.

I enjoy tweaking and improving our site, we are getting close to having all our “wish list” features implemented 🙂

New Sample Renderings

May 8, 2008

Today we received a wonderful new sample rendering from one our texture users. The primary textures used in the image are: some new (beta) palm trees textures and our tropicals (with palms) texture package.

We’re looking forward to adding more user submitted samples in the future 🙂
