Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

maybe you need to login or buy them (not sure ) but once you are able to download the textures as PNG u can easily import them to ue4 by either drag and drop or right-click and chose import in the top of the list

Load it into a free graphics editing software that can read TIF and then Save As or Export to JPG or PNG. GiMP and Pixlr should be able to handle it.

Actually this online site might be the easiest way: https://image.online-convert.com/convert-to-png

On that one, all you have to do is upload the TIF that you downloaded from the other site (or even just put in its URL without downloading it first) and then tell it to convert it and then it will download the PNG version of it to you. super simple.
