Tooltips - Change "Browse XXXXXX to be linked"

Project: 
Bforartists Tracker

"Browse Image to be linked" is a typical programmer tool tip. Technically the texture gets linked under the hood. But the user will most probably not understand what is meant. And we simply choose the image here. So no need to even mention the term linked.

What makes things a bit more complicated is that we need to choose an existing image. We don't load an image here. But that's another issue.

Task, change the tooltip to Choose Image.

Add a short description here too. We need to add a material and a texture for this material here. And then we can browse for this texture to use it as our pencil.

Hmmmm .... Biggrin

We will need to tackle this at a one by one base. Some of the cases here can be turned into "choose ... " . Some not.

Renamed the task to fit better to the needs of it.

And one more change in planning. First we need to display the name of the tool. And this name is not Choose Texture. This name is for example "Texture Browser". And then comes the "what does it" description.

Texture part

This texture browser exists in Sculpt Mode, Texture Paint Mode and Vertex Paint Mode. Let's have a look where the other items are in the UI.

Hm. Here the term linked may fit. We really need to go through a one by one base here.

Houston we have a problem I-m so happy

The texture browser also exists at other locations, and for other needs. So away with the useage tip part for useage as a pencil texture. Even when the user is now in the dark again how to use the textures in the Sculpt Mode, Texture Paint Mode and Vertex Paint Mode.
