Wouldn't it be great to be able to upload multiple skins to a single post?
Skin alts would add this capability. It's a bit annoying when you make a skin series that contains multiple colors or similar versions of a skin and can't upload them as separate posts. To fix this a skinner has to upload skin alts to imgur and put those in the description. A cooler, and more professional way to accomplish this is to allow users to upload multiple skins to one post.

The feature would include a way to change the skin in the 3D preview as well as separate download buttons for each of the alternates.

Maybe it could include a poll option so that members could vote on their favorite of the alts?

I think that would be cool.

EDIT:
Hakno has created a robust layout idea and a neat discussion of the idea here

Okay, Yeah i think that'd be cool also I don't know why everyone says this is super hard to make, just legit when your on the page where you upload a skin there would just be a little section where you could upload more skin files and name them and those would be the Alternate skins, simple doesn't even seem that hard to make all you really have to do is just take the skin file uploader and make it so you can put more skin files in it and make it separate and add a naming thing for the skins and boom done.

You can already do that by adding it to a collection. However, that takes time, and I don’t even have that feature on my iPad.

This is about having multiple skin files under one page/ alternate skins, not a collection page. Like a Parent/ Root post that has a Child (related page) or a bundle but you can choose which file to download

Uploading slightly different versions of the skin is against the site rules. The current method to this issue is having a separate image hosting site, like Imgur, to have images posted in the pages' description boxes, but it's bit inconvenient as it gets very unorganized over time.

nada, uploading multiple versions of the same skin as separate posts is against the site rules

I think marking new skins as children of a skin would also be good, similar to how "Booru" sites can append images to other images as children, or make pools.

This has been in progress for almost three years now, and no updates in almost that long. Is there any news on this?

if this were to happen I would think it should be limited to at most three skins in the single post. Otherwise there is just a lot of buttons.

This will be super useful. This feature can help the skins with multiple color variants such as my own Silvally Pack, the color variants of which I had to upload to a Dropbox folder. And every time there is a mistake in the skin, I have to fix it, reupload, and change the Dropbox link, which might annoy some people trying to download the skins. The proposed feature will get rid of the need for that, and ease up downloads for everybody.

I like the concept but I vote against the option to have the 3d preview to change the skin. This is due to the fact that this could cause theft issues, take for example skindex. Skindex has this feature where users can directly manipulate the skin and can immediately re upload it. I'm not saying with this feature the community would not automatically resort to theft. Yet this gives us a higher possibility.

You can just click Download to get the skin png. Theft is already as easy as it'll ever be.

I think the person means change the skin shown, not edit the skin in the 3d view.

Yes, but skin packs in PMC might replace skin collections.
However the feature will be great, "revolutionizing" PMC skins.
