You must open a "diffuse.dds" file from any of your cars! (use photoshop! Plugin:http://www.nvidia.com/object/photoshop_dds_plugins.html)
then save the skin, put it in a/crate a new zip folder in the car folder!

kristjan explained it.

But you dont need expensive Software like Phodoshop.
The *.dds files can be converted with DXTBmp http://fly.to/mwgfx/
Once converted, you can open the *.bmp file in your favorite paint tool (Gimp is a free one). Save it again and convert it back to a *.dds

Update:

dillner, you can edit the stickers and stencils for the painter.
Go to %tmndir%\GameData\Painter\Stencils or %tmndir%\GameData\Painter\Stickers
each subfolder is a sticker/stencil.
You can create new subfolders. The Game will notice new folders automatically every time the painter starts.

Containing files depend on kind (Sticker ore Stencil)

Sticker:
Sticker.tga > a tga with RGB plus alphachannel
icon.dds > Icon showing the sticker in the menu of the painter

Stencil:
Brush.tga > a tga with RGB plus alphachannel
icon.dds > < Icon showing stencil in the painter

The painter tapes stickers on the car. With a stencil you can paint.
importend is the alphachannel. With this channel you can control the transparency of different areas of the stencil/sticker

The first (beckscar) took long. Dont know exactly. could have been 5h. Or more if you count the time to figure out how things work.
The last one (jedipower) took les an hour, but i can do better. I mean its an easy theme. For the next one i will spend more time to make it better.
Any suggestions for the next Skin? Playboy, Bacardi or better Starwars. Or something totaly different. Suggest something.

and again sorry for my english. please correct me if i misspell things.

We should make a guide so new track makers don't have to ask the same questions or go through the entire forum to search for answers...

Adding new stickers is easy. You only need a an Icon.dds file (icon shown on the toolbar) and a Sticker.tga (the actual sticker), and place them on the folder TrackMania Nations\GameData\Painter\Stickers. Similar with sprays, but these last need to be in dds format I think...

Anyway, if you have any questions regarding the track editor just ask and someone in here will be glad to help. If you have MSN you can ask me directly if you wish.
