Default Solved - Issue with GIMP?
I am not sure if this is the right place to post this but I'm working on a collection of wall stickers for the sims 2, using GIMP to recolour some vector images before adding them to the game.
The problem that I am having is the images in the sims look wrong, the colour that I have used on the image is showing through onto the outline of the image.

The vector is premade and has a white background, I'm using a new layer and multiply to add colour to the image.

Anyone have any tips on how I can avoid this happening?

EDIT: My own silly fault, was importing the image into SimPE using the import button instead of using BuildDXT

Okay, so I decided to give recoloring a go. There's a nursery set I love, but really need more options for colors. And it bothers me that so many people contribute to our community, but I've never been able to do so.

So, I've never done ANYTHING like this before. I went to the tutorial and read the instructions for newbies. There are two free recoloring programs, Gimp and paint.net (or something like that). I decided Gimp was the way to go because it sounded a bit easier to use and has more features.

I went to the site and got this message:

Has gimp gone away? Have my plans derailed before I've even begun?

It's working for me: https://www.gimp.org
