I surpose this is the first Success in editing the uploaded sim picture, thou unlike editing the lot pictures the method I used to do this will cost some money, due to the fact you need to purchase a program, MultiExtractor for removing and editing png files inside a package file. I'm sure somebody soon will make a free sims 3 version that replicate what this does.

Anyway back to my Sim

    You must be counting the blessings that PMs don't work around here, Stw! I imagine another round of people will be asking you for another tutorial. ;)

    :lol:LOl

    I don't mind doing a tutorial, thats not a problem(well it might be at the moment considering the time) it just the program I used, cost money and I just begrudge promoting a tool that cost money, that really should be free to do anyway.

    Perhaps some nice modder might have better use for a tutorial, or at least pointed in the direction of the program, so we can do this for free.

    Leave it with me a few days, I will see if I get any help doing this for free first.

    I never pictured you as a pirate :P . I would change the image slightly, maybe something well... better. Cool, can't wait to see the tutorial.

    Hi Everyone :D ,

    I did a lot of researching work and I finally found out which
    program Zin779 uses.With this program you can edit the sim uploaded
    default image. I want to share this with everyone, because I know
    some people did search for a really long time.

    www.zindasgoldensims.com/uic.zip

    It's a program which is very easy to use.

    The only thing you have to do is:
    -make a sim, house, item
    -click on share it
    -open Sims 3 Upload Image Changer, and make sure the Sims 3 Launcher isn't running
    -search the image you want to change (usually the first one)
    -click on replace
    -replace the image with the image you want to have as display picture
    -THIS MUST BE A PNG IMAGE WITH A RESOLUTION OF 512 X 512
    -click on save
    -open the Sims 3 Launcher
    -upload your sim, house, item
    -go to your page and you will see the edited image

    If there's anything which I didn't explain well or you still don't understand,
    then you can ask here or e-mail me.

    Thank you so much you really helped me out tons! :) I had been searching for a way to do it for a long time, but all of the methods were so difficult. Also I have another question. Where do you get all of those cool hairstyles from? I think that you can download them from sites. But can they harm your computer because I am playing on a new laptop and I do not want to get any viruses. If you know any sites that I can download hairstyles from, what is the safest and best one? Thanks.

    8) Hey Stu, long time bud, knew you had to be figuring out some kind of intricacies within the game...lol...btw I emailed you a few times but never heard back from ya :( Just wanting to catch up bud and see how you, the wife and kids are doing these day :wink: Anyways there is one thing that I would really love to see if you could figure out.

    I lost several hoods (all sunset valley's) ever since the last patch but the files are still there, just inaccessible, so if you know a way to get inside the package files to see what lot is what, so that I may be able to extract the WIP's that were near finished and add back into my new install, I would seriously appreciate this bud 8) :D

    Everybody is saying how brilliant this program is, but for some reason my computer comes up with a weird message whenever I try and get on to the website...The message says :

    Sorry, the page you were looking for cannot be found

    The page you are looking for might have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.
    Error: (DNS), click the back button to try another link.

    Do you know why this may be, how I can fix it or any alternatives?

    Thanks
