     A simple texture maker. Quite slow, as it uses lines. Can make different effects, as shown in the screenshot. Can now save texture settings and load them by clicking once on the desired listbox line. I tried speeding things up a little by using different step increments in the texture creation loop code. Still have a few bugs to straighten out, but is quite functional if you want to create some interesting textures. Before saving make sure that you select the AutoRefresh checkbox and then create the texture and finally save it. I hope you like it. STAY SAFE and try to keep clear of the covid-19 virus. What a crazy world that we live in. Hopefully a vaccine will be created soon. It's sad to hear of all the deaths around the world, especially China, Italy, Spain, USA, Africa and England. Chin up and stay strong!

would love to see you develop this into a really nice texture app and get away from the slow lines method.

Hi Kenneth. I was just playing around with a simple but very slow " incrementing lines" routine and noticed that I got some texture nice patterns (which had grainy leather type effects). This was just a very simplistic approach, which is not really efficient in nature. I continued to play around and got some other "scaly elongated line effects" as well. I was just sharing what I came up with so far. You need to make autoredraw to true to save the picture. Perhaps using gdi might be a better way. Anyhow still playing around.

If anyone makes any nice textures I would like to add them to my settings list. Just copy the text file contents and reply here or send a mail with your settings. Cheers.
