I'm either horrible at understanding, or I'm missing something. First of all, I have trial version of photoshoop. I have paint.net, S4S, male skin template and png image of tattoos I want to create.
Apparently, there are no lower arm tattoos in catalog. I've tried following the tutorial, but I can't figure out cloning as recolor and export it as a texture. It doesn't seem to work. Also, the tattoo I've picked in alpha layer is completely black. Photoshop is either limited in trial version or I simply suck at this, so I don't know how to create a tattoo for my sims.
EDIT: I found a different kind of tutorial where I was able to do most of things, but the skin template proves useless as I can't place a tattoo exactly where I want it and it bothers me.

Since I use Gimp, it took me a little while to figure it out. Turns out, the alpha stuff is totally different, but actually a lot easier. Bucket fill the original layer with white, Colors>Color to Alpha, then bring in your image and the template, get your image scaled and placed, hide the template, save as .png.

Not sure if this thread is active anymore, or if I need to be pointed to a different thread.
I'm trying to make multiple tattoos as swatches. I've seen this done in other CC, where if you click on a swatch the tattoo will go to another part of the body. Seemed simple enough, just add swatches with textures putting the tattoo where I want them then on each swatch change the category to a different body part.
But, what I now get is that when I click a second swatch in CAS the first doesn't go away and they both are stuck. Even trying to clear the tattoo as a whole won't work unless I clear ALL tattoos. Is this a matter of creating them as packages and then merging? I don't want them to show in the gallery as separate, just as variations.
Didn't see this in the tattoos Tutorial, it might be in a clothing tutorial I'm not finding?
