I downloaded it, yes. But it's just an install file, right? I downloaded it and ran it/installed it. What more is there to do with it? I'm confused.

Nothing; once the CEP has been installed, you don't need to do anything else.
Just to be sure it was correctly installed, perform the check explained in the CEP faq: http://www.modthesims2.com/showthre...291#post1105291

make sure you have the CEP for viewing AND making meshes. I had just the viewing CEP and that's why mine didn't work.

I don't think there is a "viewing CEP". There is only one kind of CEP that both enables you to have extra color options in the game and also to create recolors or recolorable objects. It has nothing to do with meshes, though. Are you maybe confusing CEP and SimPE?

Well it didn't make any sense to me either...maybe it was an outdated version I was using cause I had it installed then redownloaded and installed and then it worked for me.

If anyone has problems, try restarting your computer after installing said files. It worked for me!

I have a question. I created one picture and it worked out perfectly. Now whenever i creat more then 1 at a time, i save the new one and then once it is saved a box appears saying "would you like to save the changes made on previouspicture.jpg". So i say yes, but i dont know if that is over writing that with the new one or not. Can anybody help?

What photo "thingy" are you talking about hon? Are you talking about the Photo Studio section in SimPE? Or are you talking about the picture you've created. If it's the latter of the two, then I'm not sure what the problem could be. As to the Photo Studio, you need to download the Photo Studio Templates here: http://sims.ambertation.de/en/download/realdownload/ Scroll down until you see Additional Downloads Then click on this: SimPE Photostudio Templates (2.317 mb) It should automatically install.

This one's actually fairly simple. Once your sim is finished creating a painting, you pause the game and click on the easle. This will automatically select the painting. After you do that, place the painting on your wall and voila. Instant painting from your artistic sim. :-D

Here's the Booty Enjoy!

I would also like to create my own painting template, but I'm having trouble following the above tutorial because my version of SimPE is much more recent (I have 0.58). Are there any more recent tutorials, or can anyone give me some help?

The new layout looks somehow different from the one depictet in the tutorial, but there are no substantial differences... I can't modify the tutorial on SimPE's site, but if there is a specific step/screenshot that you can't understand due to the new layout of SimPE, post here and I'll try and help you.

I tried following the tutorial, but when I tried using my new template, the pictures wound up categorized under a pre-existing picture.

I did have trouble on Step #7 of the tutorial, which says, "Import the Property Set file (EBCF3E27 - Property Set - FFFFFFFF-FFFFFFFF-FFFFFFFF.simpe.xml) available in the "Painting Template Files" at the start of this tutorial section." I couldn't figure out how to import it, so I simply added it. However, the plugin view of the texture image still had the original painting, whereas in the tutorial, the texture image was the new one of the farmhouse.

Sarahjane - I'm sorry, but I'm not expert with the tutorial on SimPE site about creating custom templates. You should better post on SimPE forum and leave this thread free for question about the recolouring tutorial.

Is there any other place I can get templates to make custom paintings? I wanted to make really big paintings. Am I limited to using the Maxi's templates?

Photo Studio is a plugin that allows you to easily apply a custom texture to an existing Maxis mesh. If you want to create a painting bigger than the Maxis ones, you need a new mesh for it.

No templates appear for me in SimPE. There was a prompt to download some but I accidentally clicked no. Where can I download the templates? I want the ones from the original Sims game, like Bella Goth and Lady on Red.
