This is an amazing tutorial about texturing that everyone SHOULD do. It covers the different types of maps and explains what they are for. You will be painting 8 2048x2048 maps in Photoshop and combining them in 'Max to create a stunning detailed leaf. I do NOT recommend this tutorial for noobs that have just opened 3D Studio Max/Photoshop for the very first time though they are welcome to try it out.

NOTE: This tutorial does require Photoshop 7 because of the "scattering" option in the brushes tab.

To my eye, the tutorial results didn't look all that realistic. Some of the techniques he lays out are good ones though.
