I'm new to blender and the process of creating seams and unwrapping them has been a challenge. I made this chair with the mirrored modifier, applied it, and then tried to texture it by marking seams and UV unwrapping.
Because my seams looked terrible I went under Mesh>UV Unwrap and reset everything and got the image below. While it looks better than what I had, I now am particularly concerned by the obvious tear down the middle of the chair where you can clearly see where the mirror modifier was applied. It seems to be effecting my texturing as well?
