I have read the manual and i have looked around all over the place online and still i am not getting it.

I know how to make a UV map and i know how to export it to Photoshop.

The thing is is that i dont know what to do with it to get it back on to the model itself and i cant seem to find how to do that anywhere.

All and any help is appreciated.

Cheers

You use the UV map in your Texture Editor, set Layer Type to Image Map (like you would normally when creating a texture on an object), then set the Projection mode to UV, in UVMap you set the UVMap you want use, and in Image goes your photoshopped file.

Does that help?

Thanks Red... that worked!

I have now got the map attached and it looks groovy.

I will post an image here when i get something worthy of showing the world.
