Get an image editing program, and change the textures so that the model looks different to what it originally did. Change the textures into a new outfit, and other things such as that.

For examples, take a look at Brejo Savet's recent thread - just look what he did to the cultist model.

Image editing programs are anything you can edit images (pictures) in.

MS Paint / Paint.NET The GIMP Fireworks MX PhotoImpression Photoshop CorelDraw

Etc, etc. Naturally, some are better for skinning than others. Photoshop is the most widely used, I believe. (Well, for quality skins, anyway.) The GIMP is a decent free program, and there's a link to it in the Master Sticky.

I haven't tried PhotoImpression 4, so it depends on the capabilities it has. But, I'd advise using both for different things, because I assume one will have some features the other won't, and vice-versa.

Use Fireworks to do the basic stuff, then move onto PhotoImpression to do the advanced things.

You can download textures, if you find a site offering them for free use, but they won't match the way the skin files for the model have been mapped out - not without severe adjustments, anyway.

Yep. Observe how the original outfits go, then draw the new ones over them.

Use ModView to check on the model with your skin to see how it overlays.
