Question: Cannot select sims in SimPE

I have a question about Sims 2 and SimPe.
I went into Sim Surgery to extract some sims I recently created so I could upload them. Their names show up but not their pictures and I can't select them in order to extract them. I'm completely stumped as to why this is happening and I have no idea what to do to fix it. Please help?

Are they showing up as Mr. Potatoheads? Do you have AL? It's my understanding that AL changed the way the game generated sims' little thumbnail pics, so sometimes they appear in SimPE as the Mr. Potatohead. Loading your game again (and possibly that sim's household?) refreshes the thumbnails (some of them anyway; not totally sure how it works). So if you do have AL, I would try that, possibly more than once, and see if it makes a difference.

I do have AL. They aren't showing up at all is the problem. Just their names and an empty white space where their thumbnail should be.
I did try your suggestion of loading my game, closing it, and checking in SimPE again and a few of them showed up like they're supposed to; I was able to select and export them and everything. I guess it's like you said: I'll just have to repeat that process and hope everybody fixes themselves.
Thank you~

Oh good! I don't totally get how the thumbnails work post-AL, but it does seem a little tricky--I hope it all works out for you!
