  1. Hello Leen You where correct. The alpha channel was gone. Being a newby at painting I never even noticed that the alpha channel had been dropped. My fault... every time I moved the image from DXTBmp to Photoshop I closed the DXTBmp program. When I loaded the files I had been working on I noticed that the Alpha channel was gone so I started from scratch and it all worked. Along with my edits, the shiny bits are back. :smile: Thanks for the advice!
  2. Hello Donor I followed your advice by not changing it in DXTBmp first. Just opened the dds file in DXTBmp, sent it to Photoshop, made my changes, flatten it, save it in Photoshop (it got saved as a 24bit bmp) Opened the bmp in DXTBmp... I'm not sure what you meant by refresh it other than click on refresh Alpha under the Alpha tag which I did. Then saved it as a dds using DXT5 format and ended up with the same problem.
  3. Hello everyone I'm hoping that someone has seen or encountered this problem and knows what I'm doing wrong. I'm a newby at painting aircraft so please be patience with me. This is what I am doing... 1 Open .dds file with DXTBmp V4.00.97 and save as 24bit .bmp file 2 Open 24bit bmp with Photoshop and make the changes I would like to see. 3 Flatten and save as 24bit .bmp file. 4 Open 24bit .bmp file with DXTBmp V4.00.97 and save as .dds file type DDS DXT5. (I've used every file type 1,3 and 5) Then this happens... http://s300.photobucket.com/user/real_life_husband/media/Chrome%20after%20paint.jpg.html?o=0 Of course it should be nice and shiny like this... http://i300.photobucket.com/albums/nn16/real_life_husband/Chrome%20before%20paint.jpg?1485046861453 Any help showing what step I'm missing so that the shiny parts stay shiny would be of much appreciation. Thanks
