I have recently downloaded SimPE in hope to simply get some of my sims' headshots.
However, when following the tutorial on how to get these headshots, all my sims show up as Unknown

Any help would be appreciated

I actually was recently having this problem as well! Did you check to see if "no meta data" was checked in "extras"? Unchecking it got rid of the problem for me.

You might be better posting this in the TS2 help forum. However, since AL was released, the game updates portraits all the time but doesn't always keep track. Hence you see a lot of potato heads.

I had this problem after getting the latest version of SimPE. What I discovered is that the new version takes longer to load and that if you click on Sim Browser to soon all the recently updated(played) Sims show up as Unknown. Clearing SimPE's cache and restarting SimPE usually fixes the problem. In the future when loading SimPE keep an eye on the lower left corner to make sure SimPE has finished loading the Neighborhood before proceeding.
