• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

MSFS Custom Cessna 152 Liveries?

Good morning,
I'm trying to create a custom livery for the Cessna 152 for a fictional flight school in Photoshop Elements, but it seems like most of the tutorials online don't offer specific advice on how to do this. For example, there are tutorials for making liveries for big jets such as the 737, but nothing for the GA planes. Before anyone throws insults at me here, I have looked at both YouTube and Google, and haven't found any relevant tutorials on how to do this. Since this has been my go-to site for the past several years, I thought I'd ask on here. Any help you can provide is appreciated.

The basics are the same for both the "Jets" and GA aircraft. The problem you might have is that PS Elements doesn't handle the Alpha channel directly. So, any tutorial for the "big Jets" is sufficient, but the handling of the alpha channel (PS Elements) might not be easily followed.
