HI there guys, I've been playing arround with photoshop lately and I made this skin. What do you think? Obviously i use this when I play in NOT ARC's servers, but since I play VSK online no one is able to see it hahahah what a pity.

Right I need some advice on creating and editing skins. I have downloaded gimp tried to install the dds plug in, doesnt want to work. I have tried a dds converter, that doesnt work or I messed up.

What programme's do you guys use? and any advice gratefully received, ta.

gato_9,
Your first burgee is a winner. we will not be producing these, just a club burgee for the forum mast head.

SANDY check this link

http://registry.gimp.org/node/70

Read the instructions closely I do remember having a little frustration getting it to work. This will load into GIMP and will be part of the gimp program. It appears gato_9
is a skinner also . So between Dan Gazza gato_9 and myself we can get you up and running. There are also a few good utubes out there.

Sandy,
I've never used Gimp, I don't even know how it looks like hahaha, I use Adobe Photoshop for making the skins and Adobe Illustator for all the logos and sponsors, so I really cant helpyou but if you want to try with Ps, I strongly reccomend you this link http://www.northspace.co.uk/skins_making.html In which Camster gives you a simple tutorial to make skins.

John,
I know that it wasn't going to be produced, I ment that a Burgee is usually embroided on sleeves or on jackets, so I wanted to be embroidable(?) even though it only stays virtual. But anyways, loved that you liked

You guys must have the patience of a saint to try and edit/create a skin. just spent the last couple of hours wrestling with GIMP, managed to open the dds files but its a proper ball ache to alter. lost patience and feel like head butting the computer now!!

it's easier to work in psd and create layers with the different details you want. Then convert to dds when finished, to put them in the game.

Sandy,
You need to download a TEMPLATE from Northspace for ACC. Work those files then save them to .dds. There are a lot of little tricks to this everthing has to be right. I was pulling my hair out at first but I stuck with it. ASK us questions we are there on TS.
We will get you through it. Before you know it you will be an expert >>>>>>>>maybe not Very Happy

Thats why we opened this Sub-Forum, get those ideas rolling and transfer of information comming.

Neither the Gimp or Photoshop programs are user friendly I have found and it takes me a good week to produce a skin, you have to have the patience of a saint just like Sandy said. Play around with it and slowly navigate your way around the programs.

Its trial and error mainly, if I had the time to write a quick tutorial I would, but at the moment I just dont have that sort of time available to me.

Franco, you sure are a master, and this is a lovely bird, nothing like some "boat porn" to bring a smile to ones face. Shes a lovely boat mate.
