How To Edit Minecraft Textures (Guide)

Sometimes players come across such situations when they don’t like some of the textures in their Minecraft texture pack. Has the same thing happened to you before? Well, from now, no need to worry about those textures you don’t like. Some methods let you edit Minecraft textures. Here we are describing how to edit Minecraft textures. Editing Minecraft textures becomes easier when you are already familiar with some basics of photo editing.

How To Edit Minecraft Textures Using Resource Pack

First, download a base resource pack that you are going to use as a template. A resource pack of 32×32 is the best one but if you have any other one downloaded on your device, feel free to use that one. Then, go to the .minecraft folder on your PC. For Windows users, this can be done by pressing the Windows key, typing in %appdata% in the little search bar at the bottom, clicking on “roaming”, then on “.minecraft” and finally on “resourcepacks”.

Mac users can do the same by opening Minecraft, going to options, and resource packs followed by clicking on the “open resource packs folder” button at the bottom. Now, copy-paste your base resource pack here so that you won’t lose that original resource pack folder in case you end up messing up with the textures. 

Go to the resource pack folder, open copies of resource packs, go to “assets”, then “Minecraft” and then “textures”. You will see so many folders on the screen among which each folder is a collection of various textures. 

Steps To Follow

  1. Open the folder of textures that you want to edit, find the texture, and right-click on it to open it with photo editing software. It is better if you use Adobe Photoshop, otherwise simple Paint editor will also work. But, we would recommend you to go with GIMP or if you don’t know Photoshop. 
  2. After opening, an editing window will open, and edit it with different tools offered by the software. Then save it with the name that the block previously had. While saving, replace the old one with this new one. 
  3. Open Minecraft and see changes in that Minecraft texture. If still, the old one is showing up, reload the textures with F3+T. If this is not working too, try saving the edited copy again. But remember, it must be saved in the correct folder path.

How To Edit Minecraft Textures Without A Resource Pack

On Java edition, you can directly edit the textures inside the jar, but this is not recommended (and unless you make a custom version, the launcher will think it’s corrupt and redownload a clean jar.

Else, making a resource pack is simple: open the jar and copy the assets folder (extract it); the format is identical to that of a resource pack’s assets folder, and you may delete everything but the textures you wish to change. Aside from that, you only need to add a “pack.mcmeta” file, which it’s just a text file with a mcmeta extension. Although it may not work for consoles, here is a tutorial for developing an add-on texture pack for Bedrock).
