Default getting UV map to PS

Can anyone point me to some instruction on getting a UV map of an object into photoshop. I have watched the texturing video tut that Mike did but how do you get the map from maya into a targa or whatever type file. I am messing with the texture editor and did a UV snapshot of an object but the image it created didn't look like what I expected. Any info would be great. thanks.

I thought that the UVs were situated on the vertex points. When I look at the UVs by right clicking that is how it looks like they are layed out. What type of arranging is needed then? I understand getting the snapshot to PS, now that i know that is what exports it to a useable file, but how do you set them up then?
