If you didn't actually save over the original texture .bmp file, it won't show any changes when you refresh. Make sure you're actually saving over the original file (it'll ask you if you want to overwrite it). Photoshop will default to saving as a copy - you need to make sure it doesn't do that, but saves over the original and it should work fine.

I don't get this. And i am used to work in Photoshop. My english is probably limited.
But what version of photoshop do you use? I have PS 7, and i have to make new layers for changing stuff into an image. is there a thread i have to read before making this to work? (i know how to recolour). I don't understand how to make all this laps put together. Guess i have to try again and again.

well, i made a pyjamas top, with hippie colors. I did it my way. Had difficulties to foolow the recipie, cause it did not work properly. I have to try again, but thanks a lot, i am on the track to get hold on this. It's fun.

Where can one show some of the stuff one have made, without people downloading it? I would show off something so you could correct me if it's possible?

Have a merry christmas and happy New Year!

It is possible to make good clothes without photoshop. As long as you are familiar with your graphic editing programme, you can usually adapt photoshop tutorials to suit. But, not with MSpaint, it is too limited.

There are some very good free paint programmes.

Paint.NET from http://www.getpaint.net/index2.html

Or,

Serif PhotoPlus 6.0 from http://www.freeserifsoftware.com/ which is a full programme, you need to register, so they can send you an unlock code. But, it is quite painless.

Or,

Gimp from http://www.gimp.org/ apparently a very good free rival to photoshop, but personally I couldn't get on with it.

Btw, this is covered in the FAQ of this area, and we have some basic recoloring tutorials for both Paint.net (which is not as crisp when scaling graphics as some programs) and Gimp.

Once you've done the basic tutorials, you can learn a bit more by looking at techniques from other tutorials, because for the most part they all use similar capabilities. Once you know how to use layers and effects and copy and paste and such in the editor you're using, you might find you can follow along in the other tutorials and 'translate' easily enough.

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!! I'm so excited that I might now be able to make a pair of M&M pj's for my sims. I love those little guys and I have many fabric swatches on my computer of them. With your easy to understand tutorial I will have a lot of fun creating fun clothes for my sims. Who knows if they are "good enough" (in my view) for uploading I can finally give back to the community that has given me such wonderful creations for my game.

Thank you

LMAO!
I use the Gimp... And... Well...
You can do absolutely everything in this tutorial with either the Gimp or Photoshop. I read through it, and every single command also has something the same with a different name or... Well... Exactly the same. xD
The Gimp is a free alternative to Photoshop, by the way. Can't necessarily do EVERYTHING Photoshop does, but it can do alot of things. ^^;''
In any case, thanks for the tutorial. I'll find it quite useful. ^^;''

Also, the gimp has a somewhat simpler way to recolor solid colors... It has an adjuster that can let you change the image's color to black and white, green, torquoise, blue, red... Just about any color. ^^;''
Though, maybe Photoshop has that too. I'm not experienced with Photoshop, as I don't own it myself, so I couldn't say.
