Let’s see how your avatar looks with your personalized T-shirt with the image you created. To do so, you need to open your T-shirt project (the one you made following the instructions of the tutorial Add An Image to your Shirt [NEED LINK].

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.

Let’s load all new textures.

In the COMPONENTS section in the upper right hand corner of your IMVU Studio screen, 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.

Repeat the same steps for the back and sleeves textures.

After applying changes, you can save your product by clicking on the Save button in the upper right hand corner of our screen.

You will then see your T-shirt has been updated!


The T-shirt can be combined with many garments!

Once you have saved your product, you can upload it to the IMVU Catalog and make money!
