Turn an image into a texture

Could someone turn this image into a useable texture for me. Thanks.

Just pop the texture in your materials folder. I made it into a decal with some transparency to avoid having to stretch the image to get it into correct dimensions. I didn’t do any actual real editing to the image itself except to remove that black bar and I haven’t tested it either, but it should be fine.

How about we teach this man to fish so he never asks us again?

Download vtf edit, and you will able to convert .tga’s and I believe .png’s into .vtf’s, then save them to your materials folder then create a .vmt with that tool as well.

That doesn’t help much now does it…

What do you mean? I just taught him how to create a bare simple texture. Of course I didn’t go into any .vmt detail but he can figure that out on his own.

If you’re using photoshop, U can also get the plugin

Thanks, it really helped.

And what would come out using that method is a badly resized texture, probably with the wrong shader type. The Source material system doesn’t lend itself to being figured out easily on your own. If you’re gonna teach a man to fish, at least teach him properly.

You’re welcome. Any problems then let me know.
