Here's a tutorial on how to make 3D skin images. It only requires 2 things, the ability to read, and the Minecraft Skin Viewer (not the extended one!!!, it's mainly for mobs and you can't change Steve's skin), lets call it MSV.

This is useful for profile pictures, banners, etc. Share it with your friends :)

You will need:
Minecraft Skin Viewer

Step 1: Open MSV


Step 2: Type in the name of your Minecraft character and click show skin


Step 3: Choose a position from the positions menu on the left. you can move around parts of his body with your mouse to suit yourself.


Step 4: Right-click the background > Save Image As > Name the image > Choose location > Save.


Animation and Background

For the animation and background toolbars, right-click the background > Toolbars > Animation / Background. Now you can make you skin move while in the viewer and chose a background from the menu.


The final product:

No use, I cannot do anything except type a user name.
Oh, have you opened the toolbar for the "File:" toolbar? If not, look at image 3. If this doesn't help, I don't know what to tell you. Do you use a Windows or Mac operating system?

I do not see the "File" Thing you're talkin' 'bout, but all I have to say after this is that I use Windows.
Okay... I don't know how to help anymore.. this never happened to me.
