Face production, or more accurately, head production, is completed using a wizard style interface. The program allows you to import photographs in a number of formats, including BMP, JPG, and PNG. You must import both a frontal head shot, as well as a side shot, and then manipulate them using the included tools. Steps include cropping the photograph so only the head and neck are visible, tilting the head, performing touch up work, removing the background, and setting face part hints. Hints allow the program to know where the eyes, nose, mouth, chin, and ears appear on the head.
Once all of the steps have been performed, then you can choose a body for your head, and finally, view your completed masterpiece. The program allows you to rotate the completed person, zoom in and out, as well as animate them to see how they will move. Once you are happy with your new Sim, you can export it into the game, and when creating a family and selecting a face in the game, you can choose your new creation.
