i'm trying to make parts of the clothes semi-transparent but i don't get it. i'm using the CTU v 1.9 and GIMP. i only succeed in making them (or parts of them) completely transparent or intransparent.

I have this problem too. i cannot add a grey color.

_Phoenix_, CmarNYC has a tool for editing Amb tattoos.

letsdance0, what compression option are you using? If you use DXT1, you probably can't have grey in the alpha - using DXT5, you can.

I am a bit confused with this tutorial.
I cannot delete the Alpha channell, it is not an option,
Do I need to mask to delete the alpha channell??

Also where do I put the design that I am wanting to make?
Sorry I am very new to this and I have been trying to do it myself but I am even more confused. ;AAA;

If someone could email me at [email protected] if they can help?
Thannk you!!!!!

I can tell you how to delete the alpha channel in Photoshop, but I have never used any of the other editing software so you'll have to wait for someone smart to come along! In Photoshop, select the "Channels" tab on the bottom right side of the screen. There will be 5 layers there labeled RGB, R, G, B, and alpha. Left click and hold on the alpha layer and drag it to the little trashcan in the very bottom right corner. To add a new alpha channel, just click the box immediately to the left of the trashcan.
As far as how to make the tattoo, I can't tell you anything that isn't covered in nice detail in the tutorial. To summarize -- the white part of the alpha channel is where you want the dark outlines of your tattoo to appear on the skin. The black and grayscale areas of the alpha is where you want the colors (if any) to go. The colors won't show up like you want them to in the finished tattoo -- The RGB mask tutorial will show you how to make it colorable.

I have tried this program but it comes up with the follow error. "Could not find a part of the path C:\simsTextureUnitool\casparts\tfBodySwimsuitOnePiece.caspart" and it will not let me continue.

Also does this over-ride the original clothing part?

That error means that you didn't extract the second CTU file into the right place.

No, clothing created with CTU won't override the original.

I'm not very literate when it comes to doing things at the computer, but I figured that I'd make some tattoos that I like, but I'm stuck. I have the tutorial open, but I'm stuck at step 3 where I'm supposed to click "add new design". For some reason I'm unable to.

This is a great tutorial, but I think a little more hand-holding, for noobies like me, might be in order. Specifically I'm talking about the part where you list the things that can be done to the alpha layer. You say you can use the trace method, the cut-out method, or the subtractive method. What you DON'T say in the tutorial is HOW to do any of those three methods listed. This is where I'm stuck, and I'm sure many others are as well. Any way this can be made clearer? Thanks in advance.
