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!

can you upload skins from apps? or from a skin stealer? so I can steal my skin and upload it?
Its easier to use needcoolshoes.com because skincraft is so laggy

You go to your account settings and there will be a profile picture, and a button that says upload file, click it and select your profile pic

I have a problemo :/
When I upload skin, it says invalid file name?
It is defiantly a .png
this is the error msg:
[size=12px][color=rgb(34,34,34)][bgcolor=rgb(255,222,222)]Invalid filename. (/home/planetmi/public_html/files/resource_media/skin/1246/_4141142) | Robot[/bgcolor][/color][/size]
I have a png that I want to upload but it wont let me upload it. It says that there are somethings that will show up blank in the end. And that I should fix it.
I don't know what to do. Please help.

i have a question:why the hell when i upload the file and then press save on the skin part does it never save it for me t upload then wen i refresh it sometimes does but now it has stopped working the skin wont open how do i fix this please
This information didn't make any sense and i tried to figure it out and do what the instructions said but it didn't work! does it matter that i'm using MCSkin3D?
it could
What if u use a other one like MCSkin3D?
It still should allow you to save it. No matter what skin-creator you use, you still save it.
I don't use that but I am sure it follows by around the same rules try it if it doesn't work then MSG me.
Why do people post tuttorials like these? no offence but this sucks, people can use youtube for a better more in-depth guide.
