Hello. There are many proprietary door paints out there now particularly just for painting exterior doors. You might want to look to see if they come in a color suitable for your needs. I’m not sure if your question was cut off what is your specific question about the door painting? If there’s a specific problem posting a photograph might help.
Hi! I found this diagram awhile ago and found it really helpful for painting a door:
If you are asking how then: if wooden door lightly sand and wipe down. If metal use a primer or a paint specially made for outdoor metal with primer. Ask at the paint counter where you buy the paint. If there are insets paint them first then the rest of the door. If a flat door use a roller instead of a brush. Paint the first coat side to side and the second coat top to bottom. That covers all areas and blends the strokes up and down.
I always leave mine hanging. Clean thoroughly with tsp then prime, if needed, and paint using a brush. I know that sounds simple but it's a fairly straight forward process.
Here is how I painted my front door: https://www.curlycraftymom.com/2016/05/curbappealbloghopweek2.html
I also always found it way easier to paint doors when they're still hanging. I prefer Rustoleum paint for exterior doors.
It's not complicated at all. I taped off the glass and use exterior latex paint.Here's a link to mine:

Hi Donna: Well, depending on what your door is made of and what you want it to look like, check these sites:

Painted the front door in three colors. The top of the door was etched and very pretty. So the colors were beige muted light green and muted dark green. I love seeing it when I enter the house.
I always start with the panels, inside first and then frame, then inside main frame and then top sides and last the bottom of the door. Hope that helps.
Remove hardware, clean, scuff up surface, remove varnish if it is varnished. Then paint as desired. Laying the door on saw horses is easier than trying to do it while vertical. Use a quality exterior grade paint on outside of door. Durable latex-based enamel (interior or exterior) is best on inside surface so it can be washed. The door can be spray painted, but is best done in an area where over spray is not a concern. We set up up a painting area in the garage when we paint all of the interior doors at Habitat for Humanity houses. The floor and walls at protected with tarps.
Craft and hardware stores sell paint that's made specifically for front doors. There are also ideas here:
