Repaint help

I've got the Abacus 787 and as it comes in not very well known (or fictional) airline liveries, I wanted to do a repaint. The problem is that when I open the bmp files in Photoshop, they come out in weird colours like purple with loads of lines across them. Do I have to use an alternative program or is there a setting to show it right? Or is there somewhere I can get a British Airways livery for the 787?

I think you would do better posting this in the repaint forum where people with the same interest could see it.
I'll move it after you respond.

I do know you need the DXT file.

You will also need the DDS plugin. What used to be .bmp format in fs9 is now .dds in FSX.

Thanks 😀

I'll try these after school.

Oh and sorry about posting it in the wrong place. I didn't know there was a repaint forum.
