You've probably noticed we still need some orange engines, so we'll do those next.
First we need to have the correct orange selected, locate one of the fuselage curve layers and set it's mode back to "Normal".
Select the Eye Dropper Tool (I) and click on the orange, it should appear selected in the tool bar.
Open posky757rr_t.bmp from the paint kit folder.
We can clearly see the 4 parts we are interested in, the engine is comprised of two sides thus resulting in 4 pieces.
Add a new layer to the bmp.
Select the Rectangular Marquee Tool (M), clicking and holding on it to display the drop down list if required.
Make sure the "add to selection" mode is selected under the Menu Bar.
First draw a rectangle around the top left engine side.
Then continue adding rectangular selections to the rest of the engine sides.
Verifying the blank layer is selected, select the Paint Bucket Tool (G) and click in one of the engine side selections. It should fill all of the selections with the orange colour.
See this layer's mode to "Multiply" and you should have some orange looking engines.
We'll need the text for the engines, go to one of the fuselage psds and open the paint scheme folder.
Locate one of the "www.MyTravel.com" text layers and drag it over to the engine.
Returning back to the engines, if the text is backwards flip it by going to Edit - Transform - Flip Horizontal. We need the text to be the correct way round for both of the engine sides.
Refer to the real photos of the paint scheme and concentrate on the engines. If you feel you need to increase the size of the text, do so.
Place the text on the top left of the engine sides using the Move Tool (V), refer to the photos for placing.
Now duplicate this text layer and use the Move Tool (V) to place the duplicated text on the engine side to the right of the first one.
Save this file as psd and check them out in flight sim (use the same method we used when saving the fuselage bmps)
They're both looking pretty good.
If you aren't happy with the placing, select the Move Tool (V) and the desired font layer, use the arrow keys to make fine adjustments. Make font size adjustments by selecting the text layer and then the Horizontal Type Tool (T). Place the cursor near to one side of the text, a symbol should display indicating you can select it. Click and drag the cursor over the text then change the font size from under the Menu Bar.
Now that we're happy with the text placement we can merge the layers.
Because we're very unlikely to want to change these particular pieces of text in the future we won't make back ups of them.
Select the top out of the 3 layers (the two text layers and the orange base colour layer).
Hold down crtl and click on the two other layers underneath to select them all.
Go to Layers - Merge Layers, they should all combine in to one layer.
Set it's mode to multiply and you're done!
Save the psd and check her out in flight sim just to verify they're ok.
