Blender 3D is most commonly used in the animation and video game industry. A quick browse on youtube will show you an immense amount of content including short movies and games created completely on Blender 3D. One of the most important aspects of these industries is adding textures to the 3D model. Textures allow designers to give simple 3d models a whole new meaning are are especially great when you want to present the idea in the form of renders or the final animation.
In order to assign a texture to your 3D model, you need to have the image format of the particular texture downloaded and saved on your desktop. The image can be anything but preferably in the .png format. You can head onto google and download a few texture png files and save them onto your desktop. You are now ready for the tutorial.
