WackyB Yahoo! Messenger Skin Maker is a unique new way for creating and distributing cool new skins for your favorite instant messenger. Creating your skin couldn't be simpler.. simply adjust the sliders and watch the results instantly in the live preview window.

Give your skin a name and you are ready to roll.... To install your skin hit the 'Generate Skin' button and you will find your new creation from the change skin menu in messenger, Simple as that!

Want to share your new skin? Register to enable the 'Create Skin File' button, letting your friends install the same great skin. Registration also removes the 'WackyB.co.nz' text from your skins title and skin name (for your own and when you distribute your skin to others!) as well as supporting development of this and other cool utilities!

You get full control over you colour scheme, adjust the hue slider to select your colour and the saturation slider to control the intensity. When you have the basics looking how you want you can go ahead and tweak the font colour to match or contrast with your selection. Fine tune the colours with the last set of controls, here you can blend colours and add background colours to the text area and friends list.
