Creating materials and adjustments
Using adobe photoshop how do I say for example create a new floor within a world, material for Esenthel? Is there a tutorial on YouTube anywhere that teaches me how to create the image with the right layers in photoshop ready to drag and drop into a material in Esenthel? Additionally how do I adjust the scaling of each floor tile in Esenthel.

Thanks the scaling makes more sense now at least.

So say for example I had this jpeg of this grass:

https://pixabay.com/en/nature-green-abst...b-1659054/

(I know esenthel provides grass as free material but I am mainly just using the photo as an example.)

now say you download the jpeg, open it in photoshop, what do I do then? To apply it to 'blank' material in Esenthel?

You can either drag and drop the image onto EE's object list to get the texture imported as a separate object or you can open a material object in EE and drag the image onto one of the slots on the right side, like Color,Normal and/or Bump, of course you should make sure that the texture is tileable/seamless.

Edit: You might want to consider not using jpg/jpeg images as your source image files even if you open it in photoshop first because jpg/jpeg is a lossy compression format unlike PNG and TGA which are lossless compression.
