you don't import the model to photoshop. You only create the texture in PS and then import it into Maya.

Once you UV map the model, in the UV Texture Editor, position the UV shells in the upper-right quadrant of the editor and take a UV Snapshot. You can then bring that into PHotoshop to paint over.
