Thx, very useful guide.. I'll probably use the knowledge -how to color certain parts of the skin
(using vectors etc.) in that described and much easier way than I pixeled it
- for possible future skins or to improve my current ones (not yet, maybe in a far future). But I think at least with the KS2 and Osella skin
I'm still very pleased.
I basically always used a more simple program called 'Paint Shop Pro 5', easy to redraw/turn/size logos cut them out of unwanted surrundings and so on with that program, but not as skilled as Photoshop. When I wanted to recolor parts of the car body, I draw the lines/borders all manually and filled the closed section with the new color, if possible.., if not completely possible to fill all of the section I kind of pixeled 'each' pixel by hand
Photoshop I just used only at the very end to just convert the saved work of my *.*psd files created with Paint Shop into *.*png format (since it has 0.1% better result/quality than doing the convert with my PaintShop), haven't had enough knowledge how to use Photoshop all the way through, but now with that guide I'll try.
Btw.: If someone can't convert into the *.*dds format, which is needed for the Gallardo GvB skin
, with their programs, you could use a small program called
'DDS Converter 2.1'. With that program you can easily convert *.*psd and other formats into the *.*dds format.
