14 City Background Brushes for Photoshop
Here is a set of high-resolution free Photoshop brushes of city backgrounds and skylines of major cities worldwide such as Manhattan, Chicago, Boston, Las Vegas, Seattle, Toronto, Sydney, Shanghai, Dubai, Russia, Hong Kong, and a lot more. The individual city skyline images are properly labeled (except for two city skyline brushes which I also failed to identify. I would greatly appreciate it though if you could identify them for me.) so you will know which brush refers to a particular city skyline. This is useful if you are looking for a particular city skyline for your project.
IMPORTANT!!!: Please refrain from redistributing these city backgrounds brushes, (i.e., downloading this set and making it available for download somewhere else). Also, HOTLINKING to the archived file is not allowed. Please refer to this post if you want to spread the word.
