Weekly Freebies: 30 Beautiful Bokeh Textures

On a technical level, the term “bokeh” refers to the aesthetic quality of the blur in a photograph. Photos and even lenses are often judged by this factor and points of light in the distance are one of the most commonly seen tests and experiments in this area.

The images that result from these experimentations are quite beautiful and have really captured the attention of designers in recent years. Today we’ve rounded up thirty of our favorite free bokeh textures for you to use in your designs. Enjoy!

Conclusion

The images above are all from Flickr and usually only require an attribution link to the original author, but make sure you take a close look to see how to properly give credit in each situation.

Bokeh textures are definitely in danger of becoming too trendy but I think there’s still plenty of great design coming out of this particular niche so as long as you show some restraint, you should feel free to include bokeh textures wherever you see fit!
