In psp7 go to the menu bar and click on Colors. Under the Decrease color depth submenu you should be able to select any of the default color depths or even use custom ones.

Well all you really need to do is to download the free program called Bright. Then put the Bright files into its own folder. Then paint your skin. Flatten the image and save the skin as a *.bmp leaving the colors alone. Put the *.bmp file into the Bright folder and double click on the bright.bat file. Bright will reduce the colors to the proper number and even make your skin look better than if you saved it as an 8 bit.

Once the file is reduced, move the *.bmp to your aircraft folder and you are done.
