Absolutely! Please, contact us and we will give you access to the new version compatible with PAM and with improved designs at no cost.
Our Avatar Creator has thousands of interchangeable items grouped in sets for men or women, each set contains:
More sets you have more combinations you can make ?
All you need in order to handle PSD files is any version of Adobe Photoshop and a few avatar sets that you can purchase at our avatar store.
We have developed several Photoshop scripts that help you handling your PSD files:
In Photoshop go to: File > Scripts > Browse and select PAM.jsx
PAM needs 30 seconds per set for 1st run. Just a few seconds the next time.
***WARNING: PAM script requires intensive CPU usage, we suggest you test it with a couple of sets before loading a lot of them.
PSD (Photoshop Document) is an image file format native to Adobe’s popular Photoshop Application.
The first time you run PAM, it will detect and merge all flat-man/woman-XX.psd into a base.psd file. This process can take up to 30 seconds per set, please, let the computer rest until the interface appears.
Through the base file, PAM compile all the stacking info and creates an Avatar Manager interface where you can hide/show items upon request, export your avatar to png, change skin tone or choose premade sets… it is quite straight forward as Photoshop capability for interface building is very limited.
The second time you run PAM, Photoshop will check if you already have a base.psd created, if so, it will offer 2 options:
Whether you run PAM for first time or rebuild the base.psd file, PAM will save your base.psd automatically for further usage, whenever you close its interface.
In order to work under PAM all folders within psd files must have a fixed stacking order and nomenclature.
For example, a folder named: a1-hand09
In the following table you have full info about ID’s and categories:
|01||others||Anything over the avatar that has no specific category.||5 Others|
|a1||hand||Avatar’s variable hand.||4 Accesories||X|

|t1||back_item||Items behind the avatar.||5 Others|
|u1||wallpaper||Wallpapers backgrounds.||5 Others|
Within each folder we have layers containing item’s color variations, regular item variations are just numbered while color cast item variations has the following fixed nomenclature.
If you use our batch and rename and export scripts, you will get PNG files similar to this: a1-hand09-afro.png (item stacks on top, item is a hand from set 09 and afro color cast).
We have tested it for Photoshop CC versions under PC and Mac, it may work with previous Photoshop versions but we can’t warrant it. As PAM is a free product we don’t offer support of any kind, even so, if you want to report any bug, feel free to contact us and we will do our best to fix it in newer versions.
Yes! instead of using PAM you may want to export your Photoshop Avatar’s items to PNG files to be be used in any web based application or mobile app. Additionally you may need to rename those png files following a specific nomenclature.
For this purpose we have developed 2 custom scripts that can rename and export dozens of items in just a click:
1.- You create this structure.
2.- Run the script to rename layers.
3.- Additionally you can export to PNG.
Open Photoshop and click “File > Scripts > Browse” then locate the script and follow instructions.
Yes, we do… as long as you don’t spect stock design prices. For your estimation, we spend 3-4 full working days to create a single set so we charge accordingly.
You can use our Avatar Creator for personal or commercial purposes as long as you don’t sell it, license it or give it away. Every purchase of my avatar creator grant you the use in just 1 application: web, game, app… If you use it on a second project you should purchase it again.
