A question about Alpha to the skinners in WW

Recommended Posts

So I've clearly been bitten by the skinner's bug.....

...and I've noticed some of these 4k templates come with an ALPHA file as well as the TEMPLATE file?

 

What is the difference between going to the channel tab and dragging the alpha there back to the layers tab (the way I'm doing it now) , 

...and using the additional file that came in the template zip folder? Should I just ignore that? SHould I be using that second file instead?

 

Whats up with that?

From what I understand the additional alpha is included so any skinner can adjust it to his preference without having to mess with one included in the PSD by the template author.

I found that using the separate alpha the best way to work on those AC with aluminum skins, helped a lot in toned down the wet, shiny look of the originals.  Don't know if that is still the case now that we have the newer graphics added in.

I agree, The alpha can really get that real look to the painted and polished alum look. You do have to play with it to get the look on any skin.
