This is a collection of texture sites. Always check their Terms of Use or FAQ for the license. As textures usually are a big part of a render, it's always recommended to mention where you got the texture from if you got it for free. If you plan to share the scene file, be very careful with the textures you use as some sites do not allow redistribution of their textures. Some sites allow redistribution but only if the texture is not part of a texture pack and instead part of another project. Always respect the license of a texture.

Some sites do allow redistribution but only if the texture is not part of a texture pack and instead part of another project (your 3D scene). Always respect the license of a texture.

IES lighting files

This is a collection from a few lighting vendors. Most of them are for outdoor lighting. While these are mostly direct links to the IES downloads, it's probably a good idea to look at the lamp they are representing first so you know what result to expect.

Lamps From American Electric Lighting
Lamps from Lithonia Lighting
Holophane Lighting
