This is the create mode update for my original tutorial in the previewer. There are many helpful comments from other Dev's in the original thread found here...

Very helpful tutorial, Thanks for taking the time to redo this for create mode.

My only issue is that IMVU automatically resizes all 512x512 textures now to 256x256. If you make your textures at the larger size, it can result in a loss of detail. I find it's better to make my template at 256x256 and then zoom in to work on it.

Yes I agree ... the templates on the product page for that product are 512 x 512 but IMVU sizes are now (and have been for a while) automatically resized down. So to set things straight we must follow the rule of 2's. The sizes IMVU recognizes and resizes to are 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 256 and 512 pixels. So every map must have a combination of two of those numbers not to exceed a 256 x 256 square or a rectangle of 256 x 512 or 512 x 256 pixels.

(the original tut also exceeded the forums pic size limit ... it was my first ever tut lol.)

hmmmmm... looks like the original was deleted ... maybe because it was a previewer thing... I should remove all my dead links now too. Kind of a shame there were a lot of very helpfull tips from a lot of other devs.
