Hi JohnNot sure what program you have. I use PaintShopPro 7.0 and I found the following piece below was helpful to get me under way. There is also a texture converter required for bitmaps. I am not sure if this is the latest link to Martin Wrights site:MWGraphics website http://fly.to/mwgfx/or search for DXTBmp.exeRead everything.Practice, practice, practice with your paint program. Expect plenty of frustrations. Then perhaps ask some more questions."GJSmith.com Artworks is proud to announce the availability of a FREE Graphics Tutorial for FS2002With the consent of Computer Pilot Magazine I have now been able to put my entire Graphic's Tutorial on "How to Paint FS2002 Textures" ONLINE for your use. This tutorial was originally published in the May 2002 issue of Computer Pilot Volume 6 Issue 4NOTE - This is a FREE service to the Simming Community - Computer Pilot has graciously consented to this release on my web site as an example of the commitment that they also have to the Simming World and I appreciate their giving me the opportunity to make this tutorial available to all simmers for FREE.The Tutorial contains all 11 pages of the article including the important steps (in detail) required to create Reflective Effects - see Part 6.This tutorial is intended for the novice and professional painter of textures as I have included many of the methods and processes that I use to paint the liveries that I release. It consists of Over 6000 words and more than 40 images to assist you in creating your liveries.I have reproduced this tutorial in HTML format and have broken it into 8 web pages so that you can deal with it in acceptable chunks.I hope that this tutorial is of benefit to those budding and creative artists out there and that it helps the simming community to get more and more liveries released for us all to enjoy.The Tutorial is available on my "How To" Pages but to make life a little easier here is a direct link to it:http://www.gjsmith.com/Tutorial/Tutorial.htmPLEASE Bear in mind - you all know that I do graphically intense web pages so I apologise in advance for the content volume but I have seriously tried to make it convenient for us all to effectively use.And of course for those that are not inclined to do texture painting there is now well over 300 FREE textures available for your flying pleasure on my site:http://www.gjsmith.com/Textures/enter_fs2002.htm - just go to the "By-Type" page for the menu of aircraft liveries available."Good luckCheersMike
