Cheers!

Hmm very odd. Yes creator is not the best tool yet to work with. Only use it to have a quick look if all shows OK. Photoshop I use the most and a lot faster.

But shame it does not work for you, it would save you some time to get a quick template before painting, which is nice with creator using the paint bucket tool

I'm sure they will fix it soon.

Cheers!

Hi,

Which decal?


Oh and get this Gimp version instead, The Gimp http://gimp.org/
Forget gimpshop

1) Installer for windows http://gimp-win.sourceforge.net/stable.html
2) Help here http://docs.gimp.org/
3) How to mirror http://www.joergbeyer.com/gimptutmirror_en/
4) DDS plugin http://nifelheim.dyndns.org/~cocidius/dds/#download
If you want to do some sceneries later

Little Gimp tip,

Go to file fonts.conf, in c:\Program Files\Gimp-2.0\etc\fonts\
Edit with notepad and

change:

<!-- Font directory list -->

<dir>WINDOWSFONTDIR</dir>

<dir>~/.fonts</dir>

<!--


to:

<!-- Font directory list -->

<dir>~/.fonts</dir>

<!--

Will speed up the loading big time, but no fonts will be loaded!

So if you want to use a specific font drop it into:
c:\Users\%USERNAME%\.gimp-2.6\fonts\

As <dir>~/.fonts</dir> points to this folder


Cheers!

No, Gimp is the latest and best one. (GIMP 2.6.7 Released 2009-08-14 )

You can also have a look at Paint.NET but it lacks some features like blur brush.
The Gimp is the best freeware one if you ask me

Oh and let me know which models you would like to paint some new schemes for, I'll upload the templates for you. Will save you a lot of time and always nice to see some paints done be others

That would be very handy if you could just bucket fill the schemes quick and post for me as i could just select colour and fill as i like and then add details,im thinking of doing some flame paint jobs to look as if they were burning up on re-entry from nose to tail and wing tip back and if they are bucket filled would just be so much quicker to do the base coat change so ill be bad and ask for a few lol P-51 Mustang ,Polikarpov I-15 , Spitfire,J3 Piper Cub,Tiger Moth,Sopwith Camel,lol , sorry you did ask

puzum???


Do you have a file with layers? Did you flatten the image before save?

Also do Save As, select Windows Bitmap (bmp) and in the filename make sure you end the name with .bmp, eg flames.bmp

Or attach the file you get now and I can have a look.
