Alien Skin Textureshop version 1.0 by Virtus is a tool for creating stunning background tiles, with many examples included for use or tweaking. Not to be confused with Alien Skin Software products (Eye Candy), Alien Skin Textureshop was created & distributed by Virtus Corporation.

  We have included a wide variety of sample textures with Alien Skin Textureshop. Any of these textures can be used as a "Master Texture." That is, you can use any Alien Skin Textureshop texture that we have provided--or any Alien Skin Textureshop texture that you generate--as the starting point for related, or wildly different, patterns. We have tried to provide "classes" or groups of textures in each of the bins that will serve as starting points for your own explorations.

With a standard install, the Textureshop application and optional Textureshop Photoshop plug-in gets placed into a folder of your choosing. If you want to use the Photoshop plug-in feature too (it integrates Alien Skin Textureshop with Photoshop) you need to move the plug-in into Photoshop's Plug-Ins folder to activate.

Architecture: 68k PPC

68k, PPC & Universal (FAT).

  Note: You will be prompted during installation to choose whether you want to install Alien Skin Textureshop 1.0 as a 680x0 Macintosh application, a PowerPC application or a Universal application. (A Universal application will run on a 680x0 Macintosh or on a Power Macintosh.) The Installer "knows" whether you have a 680x0 Macintosh model or a Power Macintosh; you only have to tell it which of the three application types you want to install.

Thanks for archiving this, meeno. Its one I've not heard of before. It works great as a plugin in combination with Photoshop.
