How to reload image textures in DAZ Studio

When you edit textures outside of DAZ Studio and save them, they won’t show up on your models until you reload them. In DAZ Studio, the command to do this can be found on the Surfaces Tab. Find the context menu at the top right corner of the tab (three lines and a triangle).


Select it to bring up the context menu and choose Reload Images. Alternatively you can use the keyboard shortcut CMD-I (or CTRL-I).

DAZ Studio has the option to display Photoshop PSD files on 3D objects, in addition to the usual JPG and PNG formats. The benefit of using PSD files directly is ease of preview during the texture process. It goes something like this:

  • apply the PSD file as texture in DAZ Studio
  • in Photoshop, make a change, even hide and show several layers
  • simply press CTRL-S (or CMD-S) to save
  • back in DAZ Studio, reload this file and see the results immediately
