This guide will walk you through the process of using Poly’s AI to generate organic textures for a range of applications, from landscape design to virtual reality environments.
📌 Textures used: Poly Organic Texture Collection
This guide will walk you through the process of using Poly’s AI to generate organic textures. We’ll focus specifically on creating textures for natural materials such as rocks, soil, and foliage. In addition, we’ll provide examples of effective prompts that will help you achieve the best results.
To begin, navigate to the Make Patches section in Poly. Create a detailed text prompt that describes the organic texture you want to generate. Remember to include information about the texture’s category, styles, types, descriptors, environment, and detail. Here are some examples of good prompts for organic textures:
Enter your chosen prompt and press enter. In a few seconds, you’ll see four high-quality patches to choose from. Iterate as many times as necessary until you find a patch that you like, and then confirm your selection.

Image 2: The prompt used and the patches that were generated for a sand dune texture. We selected the top left patch.
Image 3: The prompt used and the patches that were generated for a rock cliff texture. We selected the bottom right patch.
Now that you have a low-resolution texture patch, navigate to the Make Seamless toolbar to create a seamless, tileable texture. For organic textures, the AI should be able to expand the surface area of your patch without causing unwanted artifacts or seams. The default 80% scale should work well for most organic textures, but feel free to experiment with other values if necessary.
If you need to upscale your texture, navigate to Upscale Texture and press enter. In less than 10 seconds, the upscaling process will complete, and your texture will be in 1K, 2K, 4K, or 8K HD resolution.
The final step is to add PBR maps to your organic texture. Navigate to Generate PBR Maps to get started. Select the most suitable material type for your organic texture. For natural materials, you may want to experiment with options like Dramatic, Organic, or Matte. Keep in mind that:
Once you have selected the appropriate material type, the PBR maps will be added to your view. You can preview your seamless organic texture on a sphere, or adjust the Render and View options for a better preview before downloading your texture in either 8-bit JPG or 32-bit EXR format.
By following these steps and creating detailed prompts, you can use Poly’s AI to generate high-quality, seamless organic textures for various applications, from landscape design to virtual reality environments.
