This is a very interesting link if you are looking for more textures.
The Material archive part of the site is in German ( the rest in 4 languages) but is very easy to understand.
You can search 'Materialgruppe'..Material groups. Glass, woods (Holz) Ceramic, Plastics ( Kunstoffe) etc... are availiable.
Tip: Click on the colour and look at the list on the left under the small sample. If you see the word ' Bilder ' (pictures) then you know that larger jpegs are availiable.
All the images are free to down load. But it is probably best to check the Terms and conditions page:0 http://materialarchiv.ch/cms/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=37&Ite mid=21&lang=en
The Material Artchive is a Swiss site put together by several instituions including Architects and Museums.
I hope you guys find it interesting.
PS its really worth

I'm Austrian, so i can translate for you. the side is not really a collection of materials to render. It should be an online database for material knowledge and the basic material itself. (materials gets a deep explaination)

Hi Walter and Paul.
The actual downloaded images, as jpegs are ( opened) around 1551 x 1700 pixels or 13 x 14 cm at 300dpi. I have made good use of some of the woods....but mainly on smaller items.
Paul I will post how to download a bit later.
Some of them really can be used.
