Question: How do u take or make pictures like ones in storymode in pleasantview (with blurred background, characters in front,etc...)?

The pictures are taken in-game, but it's several pictures put together in something like Gimp, Paint.NET, Photoshop, or the like. I think you're probably talking about the one for the Broke family with Brandi and the toddler standing in front of the blurred house background with the teen son on the right? The pic of Brandi and the toddler would have been taken separately, as would the picture of the teen boy - preferrably in front of a solid coloured contrast background (like a bright green wall), cut out using an image editing tool like the "Magic Wand" tool, and then composited together over a screenshot of their house with Gaussian Blur applied. Then they probably took the texture for the thought bubble directly from the game files and put it over - though you could take a picture of the thought bubble and paste it in the same as the images of the characters.

Confused with game files how, exactly? What are you trying to do with them? Do you mean getting the thought bubble images out? Cos honestly, it's going to be a lot easier to just take screenshots of them in the game. Or you can use these: http://www.fileplanet.com/172807/17...s-2-and-all-EPs.

The Magic Wand is a tool that comes with Photoshop, Gimp, etc....it's not a program itself. ^^;
Since Photoshop costs money, I suggest you to use Gimp, or Paint .Net. Both are free, although I find Gimp a bit hard to maneuver. You'd probably want to look up some tutorials for both for them to fit your needs, though.
