1) Go to a skin maker. I recommend Skincraft (http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/571250).

2) Once on the skin creater choose "make new skin". Use the "help" button to learn the controls of the website you are using.

3) Fill in the skin with your favorite designs. Make sure you use opacity and blur!

4) Next click "save'. It should give you a choice of: .png, .txt, and share. Save the title with both .txt and .png.

.txt allows you to edit your skin in the future.

.png allows you to upload it as a back skin and allows you to upload the skin to planet minecraft.

5) To upload your skin to planet minecraft you go to planet minecraft (http://www.planetminecraft.com/) then go to skins. click "upload skin". Search for you skin file and post it. Then fill out the title and description and you are good to go!

It still should allow you to save it. No matter what skin-creator you use, you still save it.
