You're opening the texture files, not the paintkit files, which are encoded in a specific way. If you want tor repaint an aircraft, find its paintkit.

That's right, the existing textures have already been encoded for use in FS, you either have to un-encode them (not sure how on a PC, I have apps on OSX that do it) or get the original paintkit.
