It's not a bad program, it doesn't have as many features as Photoshop and PSP, but it'll get the job done ;)

Inorder to use these kits you will need a progam called DXTBMP to convert the textures and load them into your favorite graphics editor.

I'd recommend PhotoFiltre from http://www.photofiltre.com - for photo editing it's second to none (if none is Photoshop) and it's also very good for repainting due to the different fill mechanism (you'll see when you try) which speeds things up, and the filters/colour options.

It also smooths images when you resize and antialises (and bevels and shadows if you so wish) text, which makes it good for screenies too.

Pixia 3.1 is an excellent aircraft repainting tool and it's free

P.S. add a Hybrid Layer to see thru your paint colors to the underlying paintkit

Hi guys, just a quick heads up, I've started putting my own 'home-made' repaint kits onto my website.

Theres are layered kits compatible with PSP or Photoshop. Bitmaps available on request for people without PSP or P.S. I'll be adding to the list over time, but for now theres 20 or so available.

http://www.repaints.here.ws
on the Downloads page.

If theres an aircraft you want a kit making for thats not there, or there is no official kit available, then feel free to ask, and i'll see what I can make.

Looie, this was 3 months ago - did you ever get this sorted out?  I've been playing around with repaints and DXTBmp.exe lately, it sounds like you exported the alpha channel (light/dark) instead of the textures!

hi guys, would like to repaint a 737 - 800 for FSX. Will the FS 2004 one do or is there an FSX one i can download? Im very new to this.

UPDATE:
Ive downloaded and unzipped an FSX cessna 172 and i am u sing pixia now as well. But when i try to open the c172 black textures pixia says it has encountered a problem and has to close. The Files i am trying to load are in BMP format but pixia wont load them. Any ideas?

Thanks
