i need a good FREE texture maker/ editor.... anyone know where i can DOWNLOAD a good one? :confused:
When i've been forced to use it in the past i've used the popular "gimpshop" version, which gives it photoshop's menus etc to make things easier to use. However, if your not a photoshop user in the first place then i'm not sure if it would make things any easier.
and paint.net...has a plug in to allow some photoshop plugins to be used....i think the UI is a little cleaner and more user friendly than GIMP but i use both
well here is whats going on.... im just editing some of the files people made for other ships....im just adding borg textures to the ones without. but when i save the file it cuts some of it out and i have white spots on the ship/station. im using photoplus 6... it was a free dl.
mind posting a screen shot of the problem....personally im gonna ned some more to go on :)
I use Adobe Photoshop Elements 5. It is extremely good. It proportionally shrinks down images with minimal distorting. And also it can make good light maps (Vivid light for engines and warp nacelles, hard and soft for windows and other lights). Just that when making light maps it is good to set the opacity between 60% (for most lighting) and 80% (for very strong lighting). But hey, even if it is a bit charged, it is better than any free program I ever tried. I even edit bump maps with this thing and things turn out perfect! :D
i think i found something that will work. photoshop 4.... so far so good. its old but doesnt mess anything up so far
