Maybe it's not going to look as good as I thought after all. As for my XD... I don't have any pictures yet. I know, I've had it for a week and still haven't taken any.

Hehehe, it kinda looks like a toy.

Strange, I have a Walther P22 in the same color configuration (they call it blaugrau "bluegray" and it looks really mean. I guess it depends on the gun.

Thanks everyone for getting on this so quick. I thought it would look mean (like I said earlier) on the XD... but it might be too bright. maybe if it were darker. I appreciate all of your help guys.

I don't use Photoshop.. I use PSP.. but I think this is the look that you are searching for..

I don't know how you could change the polymer finish in real time.. but on PSP it is easy.

It does look cool!!!

Wow, you guys can work some magic with those programs. I can crop, do a lens flare, and do auto level colors which usually ends up making stuff look crappier. I wish I could do what you guys can.

No.. I mean yes, I can do it, but it almost comes down to a pixel by pixel change.. and I have to make dinner tonight.. it's my day off and If I don't make dinner, I am going to get into trouble.

In PSP (Paint Shop Pro) The "retouch tool" (Looks like a hand on your tool bar) Click the "Color to Target" tab and you will be able to click on a color that is close to what you want. You can't pick the exact color, or even shade, because the "retouch tool" seeks only to change the color while maintaining all the textures in the original image. So darkening it is not possible without going into it on a pixel level.. sorry..

Some of the photo-editing guru's around here may know different.. but that is as much as I know.

But.. just for fun.. here is one that I made that I think every board member should own..

Here's a few more shades that are darker. I borrowed Captain Ray's pic, hope he doesn't mind. :D He did all the hard work, just took me about 5 mins to change the color in photoshop
