Blender file system

Hi I have a quick question. does blender store textures as an absolute path?, or relative path?. And if it’s relative, is it relative to the model file?.

Actually blender stores textures and models as well as most everything else in the blend file, any image files used if they have not been packed into the blend file are referenced by there absolute file path.

ReeVee: there is also “relative path” button that you can press when choosing image texture.


You can choose both and if you choose relative, it’s relative to the blend file.
Another nice feature is whereever you type a path into blender, you can use “//”
Double slashes to tell blender the path is relativ.
