I am very grateful for this tutorial!!! Thanks a lot, truly!! I had to figure out the hard way (that is, trying more than once), that the original CC piece I want to recolor must be in the Game mods folder AND I had to run the game at least once with that content in for S4S to recognize it and show it where it can be manipulated. Once I realized that, it was possible for me to follow the tutorial smoothly.
I tested my "skills" with a recolor of Wondymoon's Gold Living room chair, and I made it! But the original objects is 955kb, while my recolor is 66960kb. It is huge!! I like to have thumbnails for all swatches, and used the PNG formats for these. But I realized that even the JPG pattern formats I used for the recolors, are quite large.
Please, what do I need to do to reduce the size of the final recolor package file? Or, which formats of files should I use that are smaller?
