Curious about what all tutorials are out there for texturing.  Preferably stuff intended for Daz3D specifically as opposed to Poser.

Are you sure you are talking about texturing, or do you mean using shaders? 

Texturing is the same, whatever program is used to render the finished result.

I mean actually making textures from scratch.  I figure that making tileable shader presets will have a fair bit of overlap but wondering how would you make a dedicated clothing texture for distributing as a freebie or for sale.

You could always start with Choholes Tutorial. It’s very easy to follow, and she is one of the best texturers.

If you are using ZBrush, I found two good ones recently on YouTube. One for Texture Map and one for Displacement Map…

That one seemed to be pretty poser specific.
