Question

Temporary textures reside on your own hard drive, so you will see them yourself until the next time you clear your local cache, or until your cache eliminates them because they have been pushed aside by later cached textures.  I have had temporary textures visible on my own screen for a couple of weeks in the past. Nobody else can see them, however, because they are never uploaded to SL's servers, where they would be available for others to use.  Temporary textures are intended as an aid to designers who often have to try out several versions of a texture before they have one that they want to upload permanently.  In the end, once you are satisfied with a texture, it only costs you L$10 (4 cents US) to upload, so it's no big deal.
