I was working with 'the GIMP' and my skins were indeed also too shiny.
I read here at RD (can't find it any more) a tread mentioning this:
When you finished your skin, save it (export) as ..psd file.
The open the .psd file with 'paint.net' (NOT 'paint') which you can get for free, and there before exporting to .dds, you can adjust the transparency of the layers (40-60%). You can either first flatten the image to 1 layer in 'paint.net', and then adjust the transparency, or adjust the transparency per layer and afterwards flatten the image, then export to .dds. After your export to .dds, you will see a much less shiny skin.
Hope this helps.
