I’m a newbie and am working through the Essential Blender book.
I created a basic cube, split the 3D screen to give me a UV Image Editor Window. I then unwrapped the cube into the 6 sides and these appeared in the UV Image window. I then created seven textures in the UV window, 6 different colours and an extra one in black so I could number the sides. These all showed up in the 3D window. I saved the Blender file and saved the texture file and closed down Blender.
When I reload the Blend file the textures are not loaded with the file. If I then load the textures how do I get the 3D screen to appear as it did previously with the different coloured numbered sides and how do you get Blender to save the texture file within the Blend file as keeping a record of which texture file belong to which Blend file could be a bit difficult.
Thanks for any assistance.
