Free PBR Textures - ShareTextures.com Update

It's Tolga from ShareTextures.com. I've beencreating free PBR Textures for more than a year.
With the friendly support of BlenderNation and CC0Textures, ShareTextures reached a lot of people and our textures were downloaded more than a million times in a year.

ST has 1000+ textures now. Most of PBR maps created using bitmap to the material. But after this month I'll upload only procedural and scanned textures.

In two years, I learned a lot of things about texture creation methods, and I tried different methods and workflows. In my opinion, the best way to create realistic textures is scanned textures. And I decide to add more scanned textures on the ST database.

I will keep everything CC0 like before. I would like to thanks our patrons for their donations. Their support keeps ShareTextures alive and lets me improve myself.

Last month, as I promise, I hired a coder and he wrote code for ShareTextures.com. He used Texturehaven's open website code and modify it for our needs. I would like to thanks Greg Zaal for sharing his code with an open license.
