This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
"Sin is a thing that writes itself across a man's face. It cannot be concealed."

About a decade or so ago, I saw the 1945 film adaptation of Oscar Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray starring Hurd Hatfield and Angela Lansbury. When I started making my own items for TS3, I always had it mind to make the painting(s) from this film. Of course there'd be two versions - one for the main house and another for the attic. You can imagine my joy when TS3: Supernatural came out and I discovered the changing portraits!

IMPORTANT CREATOR NOTE
Please do not re-upload or claim as your own. Theft is not cool. All I ask is that you credit me properly when using my creations as part of your lot or Sim by linking back to the relevant MTS page or my B2 Sims site (link in profile). Many thanks!

Additional Credits:
Oscar Wilde, MGM, Medina and Albright
Tools: Milkshape 3d, Photoshop, s3pe, TSR Workshop
Resources: 123rf.com for the ornate frame patterns.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Can I just say how cool it is that you made sure to credit Oscar Wilde?

Thanks for noticing. There'd be no Dorian without him. :D
