One possible method, make a selection of the bodywork so you only alter the paint colour, then use the colourise option using the hue slider to select your colour. Pretty quick and easy. Not fantastic results tho

Hold shift and click to add to you selection (ctrl removes from selection), you might actual find it easier using the free select (lasso) tool as long as you aren't after complete accuracy.

FREE PAINTSHOP PRO X

From another forum I frequent (lfsforum.net for anyone interested). Claimed as all legit, only annoyance is a nag screen to buy the latest version when you close, can apparently be set to only show up every thirty days or so. Not sure on content/timescale as I haven't used it myself (got a copy of Photoshop CS3)

No problemo C93! I love using photoshop (albeit not very well!) so I saw this & thought those who want a taste of an alternative could dive in!

For anyone who is willing to spend a little money to get a good photo editing program, Lightroom is a great alternative to Photoshop. It's great for workflow management and provides plenty of tools to edit photos (including cloning and healing, dodge & burn, etc).

It's definitely worth it's weight in gold.

supprised that photobucket isn't mentioned, it's free, great for editing and posting links to forums and doesn't need to be downloaded
