I'm a skinner.

If the skins are coming out too bright it may be that you brightness settings overall are cranked too high up, but screenshots of it would help to determine that.

Post a view of your skin like this, little cut & paste, so we can see what you're working with.

For the files to go into a .utx file you'd need to convert them to 256 colors and .pcx format.

I usually convert to .png True Color for my edits, and then convert them back to 256 colors in .pcx for when I'm going to test them.

It's an interesting edit you have there.

BMP files with 256 colours are fine too.
