The file I am trying to edit is the window_pieces02.tga in the Druid/Mage skin. It has spell buttons that look like this:

The buttons are in the lower right hand corner. What I would like to do is replace those buttons with the buttons from the default:

Preferably, they would also be in matching green, but if not, the shape is more important to me than the colors.

I tried to do this on my own, but I am a novice at TGA files, and using Paint Shop Pro and a brief google search, I just couldn't figure my way around enough to know what I was supposed to do. Anyone who can help me, it would be greatly appreciated. Here are the files in TGA form.

Default TGA File (right click, save target as) (http://members.cox.net/tmuldrew/photos/Default_window_pieces02.tga)

Druid TGA File (right click, save target as) (http://members.cox.net/tmuldrew/photos/Druid_window_pieces02.tga)

For those interested, the druid skin can be found here:

Targa is just an uncompressed image format. Long before Windows and BMP, some people used it to transfer images.

I think you can use a converter like infranview (<a href=http://www.infranview.com>www.infranview.com</a>) to save it into another format and edit it.

Paint Shop Pro is an awesome little graphics editor that supports TGA files.
