Hmm! I think I heard of this one. I think someone mention it long long ago. but I didnt use it then cause it was an utter mess witht the files. I have Photoshop CS2 and Gimp 2.0 for now. nothing to fancy. Just the plain and simple. Any features that would make this one really good.

Blow up I heard is good for making lo-res into hi-res. I use APS CS4 and MS paint myself. Gimp is ok but I don't like it, I love PS CS2 though, that is a very nice program.

?. If you DL'd parts then it should be like part1, part2 and so on. All you would need to do is unzip the part1 and the other parts should open and create the programs .exe. If your DL'd the parts from different locations then your pretty much screwed. If you want APS CS4 I could upload it for you and give you a link.

yea, all from same location. but i might take you up on that as the only other time i tried to combine things like this, it failed miserably.

Just to let you know, the compressed program file along with everything needed to get it running is going to be 800mb + so I will either upload it in parts or all in one shot. But I am giving you a heads up.

sounds good. but if its in pieces, i might need some direction to put it together. my other attempt at piecing something together from multiple zipped files didnt go so good (never got the file to work right)

I can see why you hate gimp. I hate gimp too. The tools are a mess and its hard to do things with unlike photoshop, but I found out that its good for make indexed palettes so you can transfer to fighter factory and the resizing is better than photoshop CS2. CS4 I dont know. I havent tried that one yet put I hear there is barely any differences.

i really like this program. i still have issues with trying to sprite edit based on lack of artistic ability, but at least i now don't have to edit sprites with paint.net to later color with ms paint, as now i like the coloring mechanism here better than before.

i wish i knew how to use it to swap all sprites of 1 color with another color though. if this is possible, spooky, let me know please.

that said, i'm told adobe can do this. so YD, may i please ask for an update on the upload you spoke of earlier.

Actually thats what I use gimp for also. If its indexed and you have a palette you can either move the colors where you want them and change the color or even add a color to the palatte as long as there isnt 256 yet.
