  ○ Get your shirt

Let’s see how your avatar looks with your personalized T-shirt. To do so, you need to open your T-shirt project (the one you made following the instructions of the tutorial Making a Shirt).

Open IMVU Studio and make sure you’re on your home page. To get there click on the home page icon.

Click on your T-shirt project. You can either search for it by name or click directly on the project icon.

Your Editor will open showing your avatar wearing your T-shirt.

  ○ Shirt creation

Let’s apply changes on your T-shirt.

In the upper left hand corner of your Create screen, under the COMPONENT section, select the Material icon.

Your T-shirt textures will appear.

Let’s load the new texture for the front of your t-shirt that includes your image.

Click the texture for the front of the T-shirt.

Now go to the TEXTURE section in the upper right hand corner of your screen.

Hover over the texture to the right of Diffuse and click the “+” button. (Diffuse mean to soften focus for a selected area.)

A pop-up window will appear. Click the “+” button or ADD IMAGE and choose the corresponding texture in your computer files that you updated earlier.

The updated asset will appear in your image window.

Close the window.

Save your changes by clicking the Save button in the upper right hand corner of your screen.

CONGRATULATIONS! You have added a personal touch to your T-shirt

Now you can upload it to the IMVU Catalog and make money.
