Photoshop tool. Open image maps in photoshop
This is an update for an oldie but a goodie,
This is an oldie but a goody. Put simply, it is a script that will open 3ds Max material maps in photoshop. I use it in my quad menu. If photoshop isn’t open, then it will open it for you. The previous version used a hard old school search for image maps used
in your materials, before opening them in photoshop. This version uses
the max class dependencies to get all bitmaps used in a material.
It has two methods of functioning.
1. if the material editor is open, it will open all the maps used in the currently selected material
2.if the editor is closed, then it will load all the maps used in the materials of the selected objects.
This is really handy script if you want to quickly adjust some materials maps in photoshop
for installation, just drop the mzp file onto you max viewport and then add the script to your quad (or menu, or toolbar!).
Download the mzp package and drop it into your max viewport.

choose the JNScripts category and the two tools should be
listed. Drag them onto a toolbar. You may need to re-start Max in order
to get the icons to show correctly.
** updated. The script now validates each bitmap before trying to send it to photoshop. If you've previously installed this script please download it again and re-install.
