Sam .. I am soooo proud of you - you finally did it !!!!! And your first recolors are beautiful!!!!!
I am so happy that you have not give up .. and now you are able to recolor!!! WOW!! happygroup

One Tipp: Write down the steps to recolor something with your own words and hints, Step 1, Step 2 ect.
so you'll never forget how to do. Thats what I am doing. After having a long break from recoloring I had to
learn/how to do it - from scratch again. And it helped me a lot that I had my own crib sheet smile201

Thank you Marie and Crissi.. cutehug

Are these recolors worthy of putting in a download..I am going to make a few more and some of them with just solid colors..

I did print off the tutorials and have them in my lap when I do all of this..I just don't remember seeing the photoshop part lol..I think I may have to glasses and reread it lol..

Marie the wallpaper is the easiest of them all..256x768 and I also have a template from Carmen..I wish I knew how to make that template..what are you struggling with..

Thank you all for your help and support happygroup

OK I sent tilly some pictures that I had recolored and she loved them..that was a big load off of my shoulders right there giggle

But my problem now is she thinks the frame needs to be recolored..but I haven't gotten that far in my recoloring yet gnome

I think I got the SimPE part correct using the Object Workshop..but when I get it in Photoshop I have no clue how to recolor it..????

Can anyone give me a simple tutorial with pictures pleaseeeee :hypnos:

Thank you all for your help in advance bfly

Sam - I wish I could help, but I don't use Photoshop, so I'm not very familiar with it even tho I have, I normally find a tutorial for whatever I am trying to do. But, for recoloring I use Paintshop pro because that's what I learned way back with Sims 1.

And, this is off topic, but I love those hanging lights! Are they still available do you know? I would love to convert those to TS4 if I can get my hands on them!

It's ok..I am about ready to go search for a tutorial on that frame recolor..

Do you mean those hanging lights in that last picture..oh good grief I had a feeling someone would ask about them lol..

They are CC..I just don't know who created them..I will try and find the creator..I hope your not in a hurry for them..it may take me a while to find them..sorry TJ..

And I think they came with a bunch of other stuff...but let me look..

Yes, the lights in the last pic. And, there's no hurry, just if you remember the next time you're in the game, if you can check and see if it has the creator's name

Sam, the best advice I can give you is to find cc from a trustworthy creator and use their stuff when you do recolours.
The EA paintings may be nice, but their maps (the places where the parts of the meshes are arranged) are sometimes very difficult to follow.
But the frames for the pics are on the same map as far as I can remember?

Or have a look here

When you have a look at the texture maps of other creators, you will find it much easier to work with.

You would not need the Photo thingy (can't remember what it is called anymore, sorry, but the tool you use to extract the EA paintings. ) if you work with custom content.

I liked to work with the meshes from Simply Styling and Buggybooz.
But there are many others with friendly TOU's you can try out.

I know this may not be what you are looking for, but give it a try.
