Hi res backgrounds?

Hi again all,

Firstly I can't believe that Dave Hill thread is still going!

I'm trying something new, using a green screen as a backdrop to my pics so I can use whatever background I like.

But I'm having trouble finding anything nice enough in a high enough resolution.

Has anyone got any ideas please?

Thanks

Thanks for that, here's a couple I found.....

I searched out backdrop designer. looks ok but quite pricey for what it is.

Main ones I'm looking for are a hammered metal look and paint on rough plaster, the search continues

Backdrop Designer is really just for creating the traditional, abstract type muslin backgrounds.

Probably the best site for regular textures is:
