This happened to me too. Yes, you need CEP for Photo Studio to work.

This tutorial looks real easy for a beginner like me to use. Thanks.

Though, I do have a question or two though.

Now, I recently downloaded SimPE (Never have before just getting into CC) and it's the new version and downloaded the SimPE Photo Studio Template I assumed was needed.

So, I went to follow your tut, but Photo Studio is grayed out? I'm not sure why though. I read the thread a bit and saw some people having a similar problem. Is there something else I'm suppose to download or was that it?

What other paint studios can you use? I don't want to use Corel or Adobe's PhotoStudio or Paint Shop.

Help!!!! How exactly do I get to the picture under number 4??? Where can I find the basises from the sims2 game? All I can do is select the picture I want to replace the original with - but where are the originals???

Please, anyone? Thanks in advance!

The picture in Step 4 shows the list of available "templates". The templates should be automatically downloaded and installed when you first run PhotoStudio, but in any case you can manually download them from the download page at SimPE site.

The original textures are just shown in the selector (to let you understand which painting you are going to recolour), but can't be extracted using PhotoStudio. You have to clone the painting using Object Workshop, if you want to extract the original texture.

Try resetting the file table in Extra -> Preferences -> File Table.
Also, run the tests in Extra -> Preferences -> System Check.

OK, I installed the latest CEP, SimPE, and DDS Utilities. I made painting recolors fine, they show up in my game beautifully. Now, however, I can't build dxt in object workshop! I only downloaded and installed nvidia DDS utilities after I found that out, but it didn't help. Help?

Thank you for this tutorial! Now I have my own paintings! ^^
At first I had the photostudio option grey out too, but I installed the latest CEP and it worked nicely.

ya MS paint should work, I used to use it and a similar method for custom paintings in sims1. Just use the rectangle thing to re-size once you have up loaded pic to MS paint :D

I have either the 8.0 or 8.1 vers of CEP, I just used the autoinstaller file from this site. And my photo studio is still grey in the simPE. Any idea where I can get the latest CEP? The CEP thread mentions 8.1 briefly but I don't think I was able to get it.

Looks like the version linked there is fine... make sure you have _EnableColorOptionsGMND in your Downloads folders and the Photo Studio templates installed. That should be all you need.
