I have a palette image in my uv editor to color my models, but every time when I close blender, I have to reopen it again, is there a way to save it in my workplace without reopening it always?

Setup your image(s) however you would like before modifying anything else in a new clean .blend file.

Press Ctrl+U to save the modified start-up file as the new default, and the images (along with any other changes, materials, objects, etc.) will be present going forward.

If you decide to go back to the default configuration, then you can Load Factory Settings

Documentation is here

  • $\begingroup$ that's logical but I closed blender and I opened it again the cube was purple without the texture, and when I opened the saved .blend file the texture was there $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ thanks a lot for making it easy, it didn't work but I saved a startup.blend and everytime I open blender I open it, that's better than importing the image $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @18.99 You have to Image menu > Pack the image for it to be saved inside the .blend file.. also not a bad idea to click the shield 'Fake User' icon, so it's not considered an orphan, and deleted on save. I have a folder of startup .blends I can return to for switching between tasks. $\endgroup$
