How do I get the UUID of a texture which is not in my inventory?

How do I get the UUID of a texture which is not in my inventory?

Thanks

You ask the person who has it full perm to tell you. :smileyhappy:

(Or you can use the texture info console in the viewer.  Nobody seemed to care when I pointed this out in a merchants group so there you go, just turn on the console and hover over the texture).

You can't legally.  You must own the texture full perm to do that. There are scripts I know that will do it, but its basicallly copybotting and illegal.  You are not entitled to use a texture unless you purchased it or got it directly from the creator, unless its public domain.  Even freebie textures you get in those big boxes of textures that you don't get directly from the creator are iffy as many are stolen or passed around illegally..

You can own textures scripted into something by UUID or in edit contents of prims if they have restricted permissions and were obtained legally by the creator of the item..  The script or texture has to be no mod/ and either no copy or no transfer.

Ah, I see.

I have a house which is a custom build by myself and another person. Unfortunately, that person has left SL now. Before she left, she gave me full edit rights to her stuff, and a folder of full perm textures for the house, but it's missing 2-3.

One is a very neat "plate glass" texture, blue-ish-green faintly tinted, with the edges of the texture "more dense". I would probably have a hard time re-creating it. I am sure she got it from somewhere else, just not sure where.

Any ideas?

Like I said, use the texture info console to display it.

Develop > Consoles > Textures

does not show the UUIDs as far as I can tell. Some short hexadecimal numbers 1/5th the length of a UUID do appear along with other mostly useless info.

Is this the correct console?

 I also looked at menu "Develop > Show Info > Show Texture Info" but it does not seem to do anything...

Hover the mouse over to the texture, UUID's in the lower right of the viewer.

Sorry, Sassy. Nothing appears in Firestorm 4.0.1 for me.

 

Show Memory also does nothing. The rest of the Show Info data appears fine.

If you have the prims full perm, you can just make a copy of on of the prim with the texture on it.  That would be ok and not a violation  of anyones license even if she bought the texture from someone else.

Or, try inspecting the prim house, should tell you the texture name and the creator.  You can contact the creator and see about purchasing the necessary textures.  This will give you a license for usage.
