View Full Version : New Paintkit Tips.. Anyone.
11 Apr 2009, 20:45
Hi all.. I've just finished my PC-6 Turbo Porter, and i've started a paintkit but i've never done one before. I've got a pretty good understanding of Paintshop pro but if anyone has any handy tips for me that would be greatly appreciated.

You must under Paintshop Pro work with Layers.
And save the finished Paintkit, for anotherone to use, not as bmp. Because if I download your Paintkit and when I open the bmp in PSP, it will me not show the Layers.
You have to save it as .psp File than i can use the Layer in PSP.
Hope this help a little bit.:)
Something I appreciate with a paint kit is to have the details contrasting for both light and dark paint. i.e. a layer of dark rivets and a layer of light rivets. That way they show up no matter what the colors used. If you offset the layers slightly you can also achieve a 3d look to them as well.
