    When I opened it in Gimp it said it had 299 layers! The template is a thing of beauty, but damn, all those layers, LOL!

    Yes, but Steve gets a little ticked if the stuff is widely shared since he and Dan split the bill.

    I've been a "Hoboer" for almost 10 years, Steve and Dan both ask me back on a regular basis, with that said, yeah it is, I don't know how many times I've told them to make it members only. They probably just want my $10 a month I used to give them, LOL!

    As I posted to the SnG page

    "PSP/Gimp templates have been uploaded to the website. They only work with versions of PSP made after 2009 due to layer groups, and GIMP."

    I would literally have a heart attack XD I definitely would offer to paint some stuff up for that mod if it were announced, given I have a lot of reference materials.

    Psp7 will not open it but Pspx7 will so I opened it and than saved it as psd file than back to psp7 and there is only 16 layers and is paintable. You have to work some things . Like the skirt front vailance. You have to remove the tape tabs . But it is workable this way

    I use PSP7 for my painting, and I also (obviously) encountered the same issue of not being able to open the file. I also have the free version of Photoshop CS2 which opens the file with no problem. What I am doing is filtering out the layers that I will not use, merging certain other layers that I will not need to change (such as the various rim layers), and eliminating the layer groups. My goal is to get the layer count down to a reasonable level, one that PSP7 will be able to handle. A bit cumbersome method, but it only has to be done once for each template.

    That being said, I also ran the mod for the first time at Talladega, and it is awesome. My thanks to the crew at SnG for taking the time and effort to put this thing together...

    I can try merging down some of the 299 layers. Each tig is a layer and a few other things can be merged without any lose, some layers can be split off or remove intirerly withowithout lose. These guys went above and beyond anything we've seen before in a template and I do applaud that, but they do have a problem understanding that most of us older guys like what we use to paint with and those programs just can't handle this level of detail. I spent about an hour last night just looking the awesomeness of the thing and only got threw a third of the layers.

    I typed all this on my phone last night, LOL!

    If I do this merge, it probably wont be today and I'll share with the guys here and not make it a public download.
