To install a texture pack, the file must first be obtained in a ZIP format. Without decompressing the file, place the ZIP file in:
Windows XP/Vista/7: %AppData%\.mincraft\texturepacks
Mac OS X: ~/Library/Application Support/minecraft/texturepacks
This path can be opened by using the Open Texture Pack Folder button from the game client. Once a texture pack is installed, it can be selected in the Mods and Texture Packs screen accessible from the main menu, but not while a world is currently open.
