A while back i made a skin with Paint Shop Pro 6. I liked it especialy cuase you could add a layer of 'paint' and still see the original markings n metal lines n whatnot. I have been taking screenshots for my camoflauge skin that will be used in DC (if thats cool with them) on the f16. I am using a desert tone for the top, and a sky blue tone for the bottom. so the plane can blend in better. I was wondering, how do i set the paint brush so i can have a transperant 'tint' i guess it would be called? for the skinners out there, what are your settings on the paintbrush?

here are mine.

And another question. How to i add images to the skin while keeping the metal folds n metal lines n stuff?

You would need to adjust the Opacity of the brush for this effect...

Also, you could just start a new layer to paint on, and adjust the opacity of the layer, instead of the brush.

Best thing to do concerning the paneling lines is to make a copy of them using the line tool on a seperate layer, and keep that layer on top. It is time consuming, but the end result is nice.
