Ok So I wanted to start learning the basics of texturing.
And just wanted a bit of advice and some links to some good tut's please.
Any help would be greatly appreshiated.
Thanks in advance.

EDIT: I searched Halomaps and I cant seem to find any texturing ONLY tutorials.
So could somebody link me to one.Thanks.

I myself hate texturing. It's not too much fun in my opinion. I haven't seen any texturing only tutorials, but most of the advanced/broken up (i.e tutorials that come in lots of parts) tend to be more descriptive, so you might try downloading the rear parts of such a tutorial. I know The Ghost talks about building and texturing a turret in one of his tutorials. You might try that (though it isn't too descriptive).

I think messing around with an image editor is really fun. Just look around at sites like tutorialized.com for tutorials on GIMP and such. I use GIMP, even though I don't really ever texture, but I'm sure it would be really easy to once you get the hang of it, or even basic skills needed to. But the one thing I've noticed is you need to have plenty of layers and if you're using GIMP, you should become familliar with the Filters->Map->Make Seamless so that you can have a tileable image. Sorry for not exactly answering your question, OP, I'm not exactly sure on tutorials only on texturing but that's the best advice I can give you, just to get familiar with your favorite image editor, cheesy phrase, but it's fun and easy.

I was asking myself the same question about a tut a long time ago. I will have time later tonight to try and put one together for you.

Some questions:

Gmax or Max ?? ( I use GMAX )
Photoshop or GIMP ?? ( I use PS not GIMP )
Ground Textures??

* Give a few days to work on this I had something come up in rl.
