Layered Image Editor - how do the maps work for it?

Hi I used to use daz 3 a couple of years back but then forgot about it. I decided to get back into learning it again as it seems fun I'm actually using Daz3 as it is the one I was used to and prefer to stick with it for the time being.

I have done a lot of the basics with daz and am trying to get to grips with the LIE. I have gotten some maps for it like the goredom one: http://www.daz3d.com/shop/gore-dom-for-daz-studio and the wet maps one: http://www.daz3d.com/shop/wet-body I have looked at the tutorials and I am still in the dark as to how to actually put them up onto a V4 body texture. When I have the LIE screen up with the characters texture on it for example for their face, I do the insert layer / image/ browse for image but cannot find any of these textures from the ones I downloaded earlier (the ones linked above)

Can anyone who has used these before tell me exactly where and how to find them? thankyou.

    The GoreDom ones are applied using DS shader presets, not the LIE. I my setup, these are found under Content > Shaders.

    I don't have the Wet Maps that you linked to, but they should probably have a ReadMe file along with them, or at least one that you can find online when installing them. That should tell you where the maps are installed to. What I usually do with something like that, is to install to a Temp folder on the Desktop, and then I can clearly see what it contains, and if it is just JPEG images, it can be installed anywhere I want to store it.

    You don't need to use the LIE to apply those - just double-click the preset in the Content pane. You can then use the LIE to adjust position and so on, if you wish.
