Before I begin I’d first like to let you know that I am relatively new to blender so please be descriptive in your answer. Also, keep in mind I am using version 2.57.
I’m learning on how to apply an uploaded .png image to a mesh. For starters I’m working with the monkey. However, when I go to upload the new image this error message comes up: “Can’t read: “(insert image name here.png”, No such file or directory.”
Am I doing something wrong? Because it is a valid image, I can’t imagine what would be wrong with the image itself like the error message is suggesting. Here are the steps I’ve taken so far:
-marked seams on the monkey
-unwrapped the monkey in the UV editor
-added a UV test grid to the whole monkey
-selected the area where I would like the image to appear
-projected that selected area from view (pressed “project area from view”)
The selected area is visible in the UV editer area, then right after that is when I go to upload the image and that’s when the error message shows up.
Thank you in advance for your help
