Recent Paintjob

Not sure if this is the right place to do this or not, I'm pretty new. I know this is the forum I will probably be hanging around the most. I've already read some good advice and I've only went back 5 pages, only a bunch to go. Anyways, I love to custom paint. I'm trying to do it on the side but family and work take up alot of paint time so I only get out about 4 to five paint jobs a year. Here is my latest if I can figure how to upload the pics. I went to FAQ but could not find an answer.

Well my pics of the truck were too large. the only one that did load is of the stripe that separates the 2 tone job. I went for a tarnished metal look and I gave it a 3-D look with a shadow. If some one will tell me how to resize them or I could email them to some one, I could get the truck pics up, Thanks, Ward

to resize the photo, (an easy way) would be to open the photo in microsoft paint... goto "image" .... goto stretch/skew and in horizontal and verticle type 50% for both to reduce the image to half size or 25% for 1/4 size, etc.

the paint still looks good!
