Default What do I need to Start doing skins

Hi all
Can anyone tell me what programs and ad-dons do I need to start doing my own skins for Rfactor.
I would love to start modifying my skins that I have ( only the ones that have permission okay).
I have Photoshop 7 is this okay?
What else do I need to get going.
Thank you

look here

You can over write orginal skins so you can use it online with no missmatch .

But best is to do new skins is add a new skins folder to have new skins in you can copy the orginal files rename them no need use templates then if you wanna show your skins you must send the skins to the drivers that you wanna to use and see your skins.

Otherwise they just see the default skins that the mod use when join a server online.

that way you not need upload and install new skins in the server.

Paint Shop Pro & Photoshop are the most popular. Alot of beginners are using GIMP.....I've tried it, and it's features are alot like PSP.

you will also need the dds plug in for PS you will also need to create an .ini file for the cars here's an example
[[[kobolt racing]]]
[[ Steve woods]]
[Ford Falcon FG 2010]
body=Ford Falcon FG 2010 kobolt
windows=Ford Falcon FG 2010 kobolt racing
wheels=Ford Falcon FG 2010 kobolt racing

created a word doc and save it as a.ini file making sure to name the file the same as the dds file - for example Ford Falcon FG 2010
