I managed to get a couple of screen shots of Amy rocking out on her guitar on a stage at one of the community lots I placed and I thought it would be really cool to have a poster of her in the house, but now I am not sure how to do that.  I vaguely remember something about being able to paint from pictures on the cell phones, but no one was there with her to do that (although I could always send her back with a family member this time, but with my memory, I am not sure if I am remembering something that is actually possible, or just something I thought would be nice to have, arg my brain can be annoying sometimes!!!).  I was thinking an actual poster, that would be in buy mode would be nice, because then I could put one up at both of the fake clubs I have in the game and randomly have people stop and look at it through out the generations of the game.

I also need to see if I can figure out how to make it a tee shirt.  I have the pattern maker, but I don't want Amy's face all over the shirt, just in the center like shirts you get at concerts, maybe with so dates on the back like it is a tour shirt, but I would be happy with just her face on the front.

Does anyone know if there is an object editor that would work on a mac?  I am willing to do the work myself, I am just not sure where to begin looking (I went through a few forums, but didn't notice threads about making stuff).  If someone can just point me in the right direction I would really appreciate it.

If you don't want to follow that link, then here are the two pictures from the post.



Apart from showing the fake paintings (and yes the white frame didn't really work but I did like the black frame around the kittens) this also shows how the puppy and kitten looked on a t-shirt. (If you squint behind the book that she is reading.)



This picture shows the CAP placement for the picture so that it can be in the right place on the wall. I believe that this is also the placement necessary to create the t-shirts. It may involve a little trial and error - depending on the age of the sim that you hope will wear the t-shirt.

Hope this helps.
PS I expect that you already know - please forgive me - but you will need to resize your screenshot to import it into CAP. I think the maximum size allowed is 256 by 256.

PPS I once created my own poster, using my own image, following the instructions here:
http://www.sims2wiki.info/wiki.php?title=Sims_3:How_To_Clone_A_Painting_And_Change_the_Texture

It seemed like a lot of effort but it worked. It was a long time ago that I did this though and I understand that it may work differently now. I also do not know whether or not the programs are compatible with a Mac. Sorry.
Thank you for posting all of these instructions and links, I will be looking over them and seeing if there is any way for me to make this work, because it would be nice to get a shirt pattern done before Amy joins Stiles in the afterlife.
