Today i am showing you how to make your own 3D pictures of your skin, to upload to sites or create cool images. The download links are at the bottom, but also where neccesary.

(For you all with a mac, i am sorry, i don't have any knowledge about mac, and i think the software is not available for mac.)

This is what we will have in the end, a png that you can use for any blog, skin post or other website.




WyFupng
With it, you can also create pictures like this, to make a skin preview or something look cool.

The programs you need to create png's like the one above, and to view you own skins in 3D, is Skin Viewer Extended. Using this program you can easily import your own skins and view them in 3D, and i will show you how to do that below. You can download the Skin Viewer Extended HERE.

To view existing skins that people have on them, you can use the reguler Skin Viewer. You can download it on the same page.

Another program that is very useful for creating pictures like the example in the minecraft village, is photoshop. It is definetly the best program to use.

When you have installed Skin Viewer Extended you should have an icon like this:




WuCHgGRjpg




Click it, and you will open up Skin Viewer Extended:

First off, try to play with steve, you can move his limbs and his head, and you can turn him around by moving his body:

Now we will try to import our own skin, i will use the Gamer Steve skin i made.
Click on the 3 dots button you see next to the dimensions of the textures. you will find a file browser where you can select your skin:





QZGPVgjpg




I will select my Gamer Steve skin, but you have to select your own skin of course. After you selected your skin, you will see it instead of steve, and you can move his limbs etc.




CFWTHjpg




Now, we click save image. it will open up another file browser, where you can save the skin as you want:

And There's your png file.

Excellent tutorial, diamond and subbed.

I have a question though, how did you create the font you used for the headings?
Ex. The heading titled "using skin viewer"

Thanks much!

what do you mean bij trolling the banner and wasting your time, i think this is much easier than looking on google.

btw, if you look for "3d minecraft skin png" on google, this will be the first result.

I have a question. When you put the png into the blog or whatever, how exactly do you insert it? I can't seem to insert my pngs by copy and paste, insert image, or in a spoiler text.

You can also use NovaSkinEditor to make skin models, and you don't have to download anything.

Nova skin is a very good skin editor, I use it for all my skins

Rhedd

March 8, 2013, 6:32 am

Well, that doesnt work for all of us. Its not that everyone use the NovaSkinEditor to create the skins (like me). Then you first need to upload you skin, then make it like 3d, then download the png. Thats a long way around.

Also, you can create a 3D png with this program in 3 clicks, and save it in any folder you want. NovaSkinEditor isn't nearly as simple, and it would save it in your downloads folder.

And last, if you think novaskineditor is so easy, then why did you click on this tutorial?

I don't use NovaSkinEditor for making skins. I use SkinEdit3D. I just use it for player moddeling.

You don't HAVE to save it into your downloads. You press the screenshot button. Then you right click, save as, and then save it where you want.

And lastly, do you have a problem with me giving you views?

"And lastly, do you have a problem with me giving you views?" He's just saying what he thinks, and you clarified for him. But in referral to that last part, there isn't any need to be rude.
