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.
