I'm trying to add a texture to my model. I'm following some tutorials om YT to know how to do it, But my blender doesn't do what it should do.

I can't add the correct things in the node editor:

This is what my node editor displays by default: enter image description here

This is what it should display by default: enter image description here

Also I can't add a image texture box in my node editor.

I hope someone can help me out on this. :)

    $\begingroup$ At the top of the screen, it says Blender Render. Click on it to open a dropdown menu and select Cycles Render. Cycles is what you are looking for and utilizes nodes. Blender Render does not. $\endgroup$ – Shady Puck Apr 26 '16 at 12:29

    $\begingroup$ Blender Internal does use nodes, however Cycles and Internal are just completely different. See how they are different $\endgroup$ – Mr Zak Apr 26 '16 at 12:56

That's probably because you are in Blender Internal, try switching to Cycles.
