Howdy, it's been a while! Apologies in advance...
I used AC10 quite a bit, and am slowly getting back into it, this time with AC19.
Can't seem to figure out how to access/edit a texture PNG/JPG/etc to have it display in the 3d window (it renders fine after changing the surface color). I imagine there must be a way to do this?
With AC10 I would copy the PNG file, edit it in photoshop, then save as a new png/jpg in the appropriate library folder.
Any thoughts/links/etc much appreciated.

Read about the Embedded Library.
You need to add the texture's image file to the Embedded Library. Then you will be able to set the image for the Texture of the Surface of your choice.
