um... you just edit the .jpg or .tga files in the PK3 file assets1, under models... um... you can use a number a programs such as: Photoshop, paint shop, paint (not recomended). Then you recompile the main folder into a pk3 with a custom title... and tada!! To un-zip/re-zip you can use: WinZIP, WinRAR, WinACE(i think), pk3 pop-in place... etc. just re-zip it to a .zip then rename to .pk3. um... i don't know what else to tell ya.
thanks, ill try that shit. i got photo shop

You need a minimum of 3 things: a graphics\photo program like Photoshop or Paint Shop Pro, ModView, which is available in the Software Development Kit (SDK), and a .pk3 management program like PakScape or WinZip. You also need Wordpad or Notepad to edit text files.
You can get information by reading old posts here http://www.lucasforums.com/forumdisplay.php?s=&forumid=361
There is a skinning tutorial video here http://www.lucasfiles.com/?s=&action=category&id=102
