Let’s dive in and make your first t-shirt.
We will take you through each step of customizing a t-shirt. At the end of this guide, you will be able to add your personal touch to adapt any existing IMVU product to your style.
2. Download the materials to make your shirt
To create your own shirt, you will use the Bella Crop Top. This product contains 3 textures (front, back, and sleeves). In this case, textures are the surfaces of your Bella Crop Top.
After downloading the textures, you will see the following files in your computer’s “Downloads” folder.
3. Customize your shirt
Before uploading your product into IMVU, you will customize its surface using Photoshop or Gimp software.
If you are not familiar with Photoshop or Gimp, do not panic. Just follow the steps and you will see that there is no need to be an expert to make amazing products. All you need is a basic understanding of using a Painting (texture-creation) application.
First, you will start with the front of the t-shirt. Once the front texture is done, you will repeat the same process for the back and sleeves.
