    Hello from Brazil!

    HI nntdesign ,

    Once the UV map has been established from your 3D program then they are set in stone. You are only able to alter the texture within the UV coordinates.

    Once you have altered your textures just save the texture back to its original file name and format to the original location through Photoshop and use your 3D program to open the 3D object. The new texture should appear on the object.

    I hope that this helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
