Problem finding my way around in Texture UI


I’ve currently found myself stuck find my way around in the control panels on a project. I’ve applied a displace modifier on an object and am now trying to create a new texture in the texture panel but am finding that whatever I do is still relating to the displace modifier and I can’t seem move back to just creating a new texture. This is probably something simple that I’ve overlooked but you help is appreciated.

Thanks for you time.

You need to create a material first. A texture (other than displace or brush) is a component of a material. You should have more options then.
