Hey guys, I have made quite a few repaints for my virtual airline. While I like my livery, the actual qualities of my paints are crap, lol.
I use microsoft default paint program (yes.. i actually said the condemned words, lol) becuase I haven't got Photoshop and I don't exactly know how to use CorelDraw Essentials, which I do have.
Does anyone know how to repaint a plane in Corel?
Also.. If I can't get this right, I would greatly appreciate if someone would paint a POSKY 737-800 in my airline's livery. Contact me for more info

Make sure you have and use DXTBMP, available here https://flyawaysimulation.com/downloads/files/2883/dxtbmp-dxt-extended-bitmap-editor/
MS Paint will give you inferior textures... period.
Re CorelDraw Essentials, I've never used it so I don't know how useful the Help Menu is.
I would trawl their Support Services to begin with http://www.corel.com/servlet/Satellite?pagename=Corel3/Section/Display&sid=1047022940762
You may know that Corel bought Jasc PaintShopPro. Here is another avenue: PSP has always had a fully funtioning trial version.
Try Paint Shop Pro X?It's FREE!
You will be trying a 30-day, fully functional trial edition of Corel Paint Shop Pro X, which includes:
Automatic photo fixes for common photo problems
Precision controls for people who want to fine-tune photos
A built-in Learning Center that shows you how to get started as soon as you open Paint Shop Pro X
I'm suggesting this because PSP has a good Help Menu and as I can see now even a "Learning Center".
If you get comfortable with PSP, you may get to the point where you see the connection between PSP and CorelDraw Essentials.
I would suggest to get a decent tutorial written especially for repainting purposes and to visit the forums that deal with the topic.
Thanks Tailhook.. I actually found the Paint Shop Pro demo right after I posted the original message, lol.
I played around with it, looked up some tutorials and produced a half-way decent repaint of the POSKY 737-800. (well.. at least it's better than anything MS paint could've given me)
Thanks for your help
I'm glad you got some results Ryan - I have fond memories of PSP
