As per the image below, I have UV unwrapped something, and textured it. It looks right when rendered, but In the actual uv unwrapping window I do not see the image I imported, only the Orange lines. This will pose an issue when I have to texture something more complex than a cube. Where go me image? I is smart.
You can open the texture in the drop down list of textures
but In the actual uv unwrapping window I do not see the image I imported,
The texture is not applied to the material in this window but in the node editor
Also remember that if you create a new image texture in blender you will have to physically save it (Image menu) before saving your blend file or when you reopen the blend file the texture will be permanently deleted
