I was asked by our very own CB to do a tutorial on how to use a non EA painting mesh to create pictures and here it is, sorry but there is a lot of pictures within this tut but it is very easy to follow, well if your ready we will begin.First thing to do is find a painting with the size mesh you want from within the community. For this tutorial I am using a mesh by Helen found HERE When you have downloaded your paintings DO NOT install them into game, put the sims 3 pack somewhere easy to find. This tutorial is for Gimp. I am presuming you have already downloaded images to your pc to use for your pictures.

STEP 1 - Open TSR Workshop > Create new Project
