Ok, so I saw a tutorial where they had to import textures because they were just dealing with simple particles. When they clicked the thing to import textures, they could see what the textures actually looked like!
How do I do this? On my thing it just gives me a list!

That's going to be a matter of how you have your computer's operating system set up to display the files. There should be display options in the window where you select the files. Without knowing what tutorial you refer to or what OS you are using, its hard to offer any specifics, but if you can't figure it out, just open the folder containing the textures on your computer and have a look to find the ones you want.

Heh, 'the particle engine tutorial'. Was it a text tutorial? A video tutorial? Was it here on this site? On Youtube? On another user's site?

Its generally best, when referring to a tutorial or other resource, to just include a link to it in your post. then the people trying to help can see exactly what you re referring to, and can assist more effectively.
