Can I export with textures?

Hi,

Blender models with photographic textures.

I am new to Blender and so not too sharp on the basics.
I want to export my modles with textures to use in Vue.
Vue will import 3ds or dfx or obj files.

So far my attempts lose all textures.
Is there some obvious thing I am missing to export the textures with my object?

Thanks

The .obj format supports UVMapped Textures.
