You don't want a texture in UDK, you want a material! So check Tutorials about making materials in UDK. The different textures (diffuse, normal, specular) are needed for a proper material. Diffuse is all the colors, normal is all the detail and specular is the reflectivity. You have one material, but three textures.

In order to fully understand this process, you need to look into 3D modeling programs, such as Max or the free Blender. The topics you need to search for are:

unwrapping, UV-Space, baking textures, nomal map, specular map, UDK basic materials

There are uncounted tutorials on texturing for UDK. What you may need is a deeper understanding of the technology used in games.

Which stage of the process do you need help with?

UVing the model so that it can work with texture images?
Painting the texture images in Photoshop?
Loading the images from photoshop to UDK?
or setting up the material in UDK?

You can work creating textures in photoshop starting from pics and reproducing them in digital painting and photomanipulation togheter.

Do you have fireworks at all? I've used it for 3d textures in the past and am still using it for level design currently. But, back to PS, for your sniper, what effect are you going for exactly?
