I always use corel photopaint, instead of adobe's photoshop.. do you want the picture in different format?

I could try creating something (better) for those two missing ones too.

would be nice if you could try to do the missing ones, too.

You mean the .cpt file? I'll upload it.

Where can I get the research report of "orbital ufo activity" so that my artwork for it is accurate. Didn't found it from the ufoai wiki. Maybe someone could post it here please? I can do something a lot nicer than the bloodspider autopsy, which was pretty hard to work with.

Ok, I did something for Orbital UFO Activity.

To my web address I uploaded a file used (earth.jpg) in the creation of this and an original .cpt file of the image shown here.
Also added the previous blood spider autopsy image .cpt - is that all you needed? I hope you can use some of this.

another small issue - please export the cpt files to some other format that keeps layers and the like alive. there is no other program that is freely available that is able to open corel photopaint files that i know of.

Use Paint.NET and its native file-format to save the whole thing

UFO activity image is now uploaded in various formats, which ever suits you best. However, there are no layers as my method is to combine them to the background as I go on.. if you want something changed I can edit from some autosave point.
http://koti.mbnet.fi/pretend/ufoai/

The globe picture is off from a picture cd that says the images are free to use for non-commercial use. And, it's hardly visible in the finished image which is heavily edited. My Orbital Ufo Activity image is free to use in any license UFO AI project needs it. (haven't looked into the details of different licenses)

Is my work is good enough, should I look into "The Alien Strategy"?

Such a restriction is not GPL compatible if I'm right... :(

Maybe Inkscape can do the magic? : http://www.inkscape.org/

Perhaps it would work to simply save each layer individually, with alpha texture enabled on all layers but the bottom one, so anyone could "stack" them in *any* graphic-editing program.

They could be numbered, such as "bloodspider00.png, bloodspider01.png, bloodspider02.png, ..."

"Non-commercial" can mean a number of things in my experience, which sometimes is GPL compatible and sometimes isn't.
