Texture and reference image site Texture.ninja has dropped its premium subscription model and made all content free. They have also launched a Patreon to help cover server costs.
From the site:
I initially created this website to be a premium subscription service. But I realize now that rather than creating a service for a handful of people, I want to provide a useful service for as many people as possible.
The hosting costs for this website are ~$60/month. Any funds past that mark will allow me to add more textures. I already have a large backlog of textures, reference photos and hdris, but freelancing takes up most of my time.
I had to disable the content delivery network to minimise costs. This won’t make a difference if you live near the east coast of the US but if you live anywhere else you might experience slower connection speeds. If I can get enough donations I’ll enable this again.
