I'm a new user of Blender and I wanted to try using bump maps.

I've watched a few tutorials online, looked here on Blender.SE and on the Blender guide, but I'm a bit stumped because I have different options than what I saw in the tutorials:

This is what the tutorial show.enter image description here

I cannot find the material output or the Diffuse BSDF node anywhere. I'm wondering if I need to change my settings or if I am doing something wrong. I made sure to look at tutorials for the same version of Blender than what I use, in case it might be an issue.

  • $\begingroup$ Make sure you are using Cycles Render (drop down top middle). When you add a material it will not necessarily create nodes, you need to click "Use Nodes". $\endgroup$ – rob Oct 11 '18 at 7:51

Maybe you're not in Cycles Render mode (top horizontal menu bar), or maybe you are, but in the Node editor you are not in Shader mode (bottom horizontal menu bar)?
