Default Applying texture to an object

Would anyone be able to explain to me how I can apply new textures to an object. I have the image I want to use but how do I go about attaching the image to the object. I am new by the way if you couldnt tell.

Thanks J

Assuming this is about lightwave (based on your choice of icons under your username) you can fire up Modeler, and open the "surface editor", then under "color", select "T", got to "surface type": select "Image Map"... select the appropriate "Projection type", then select "load image"

If it's a simple shape, you may want to try automatic sizing. That should get you started at least

Regarding the choice of planar, cubic, cylindrical, etc. try them all and see how it affects the texture.
