I see no image to work with in Photoshop, after I do a UV Snapshot.

I've poly projected a cylinder with an image and laid it out in the UV editor, then saved out a UV snapshot and get no image in the snap shot! What's happening?

What you get is right. UV snapshot is a tool to get a snapshot of your UVs (the grid) to paint over in photoshop :)

What you need is the "convert to file texture" from the hypershade.
Open it, select the material and select the object the material is applied to, then you go to hypershade-->edit--->convert to file texture

Thanks nookie, that was very helpful. Cleared things up a bit. :) You're an awesome light artist. Super clean work. What renderer do you prefer? MR or Vray? My preferred style of art too. ;)
