Creating UV mapping that got shadows
Is it possible to create uv mapping(The file you transport to other programs to edit the texture) that got lightning so that you can see depths in Maya? For example for what i want to get look at this image.

Yeah set up some lights in the scene and then use the Convert to file texture in the hypershade with shadows highlighted,

Okey thanks for the answer but there is one thing i dont understand and that is, where is the shadow node? O_o
I guess it is somewhere in the hypershade but i dont know where.... I tried this one + selecting the object but the texture is still plain grey.

Hmm is it possible to snapshot so that it includes the texture?
The reason why i want to do this is so i get the image in a better resulotion then the 512 that seems to be the best for the shaded texture.

The image below is a print screen.

Yes but the problem is that i can only go to 512 and not further. :S
And sadly I need a 2k resolution to fit the other texture in photoshop.
