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

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. Tick the 'Enable Textures' box and you can now select from over 40 textures to enhance your skin's look and feel. Texture adjustment sliders let you change every aspect of your texture from the subtle to extreme... It's easy to create and install wood/metal/stone/canvas/paper/etc skins in minutes
