Skins.Etc x STOP ADVERTISING

- Me, Myself, and I

we don't make skins on this pg, just the
2 above. & we don't do personals!
We're just too busy, we do have lives.

No, we don't make personal skins! got that? so stop asking and you won't have to waste your luv! And even in our group name, we clearly state that we don't allow advertising. So why bother? There's no point of "chancing it" anyways. Just wastes your time and our time. Mostly your time. We review all our comments, & we just click the "reject" button on a comment that is advertising. Yeah and you help us anyways, by putting it in caps and repeating the links, then we know straight away to reject it.
We don't care if you share the luv, or if you'll allow us to advertise on your page and all that.
People have asked us "Where can i find the free trials for the programs?"
& I tell them to Google
But this is prob much faster:
Paint Shop Pro Free Trial:
Animation Shop Free Trial:
Winzip Free Trial:
I think theres no viruses on them.. cos no one has had troubles yet.. but im not 100% sure so its your choice if you want to take the risk.. but if you have a good anti-virus program on your comp it should be ok
THE SIZES OF THE GRAPHICS FOR THE SKIN
*name* = Width X Height
nav_bg = 760 x 40
main_bg = 760 x 375
main_icon = 20 x 20
main_footer = 11 x 15
module_header = 375 x 44
module_bg = 375 x 50
module_line = 32 x 2
IF you dont know what some of these parts of the skin are, go here: http://www.bebo.com/SkinSpecificatio...
'The Bit at the Top of the Skins'
*ie.. Where We Have 'Skins Etc'
Many people have been asking me that question.
Heres how you do it:
Open up your skin's stylesheet.
Go to 'main section'.
Under that the first thing is called 'padding top'
Change the number there..
ie. smaller number = higher
larger number = lower
375 is the size for your main..
I do it accurately by using Paint Shop Pro's 'crop' tool.
There will be a tutorial on that soon
BEBO SAYS MY SKIN FILE IS TOO BIG!!!
Ok.. happened to us loads of times and its soo annoying.. but bebo just dont accept any part of the skin eg.main_bg larger than its max size..
Soooo... to make it smaller.. maybe use less colours, less pics of make it lighter or darker or use less brushes or something!! I know it might look a little plain then but im sorry theres nothing else you can do
But if it's your main_icon or main_footer that is too big, & you don't even have much on it, then save it as ".gif" because the file gets really big while saving small images as ".jpeg".
WHAT FILE TYPE DO I SAVE IT IN?
.gif is the best file type to use..
and i think bebo only accepts jpeg and gif
google to see if theres a site to change the file names
but on good programs like photoshop and paint shop pro you can choose what file type you want to save it in (as seen in some of our tutorials)
But if you're saving your main_icon or main_footer, we recommend that you save it as ".gif" because sometimes when you save them as ".jpeg", the file is way too big.
NEVER GIVE UP!!!
loads of people get all confused when they open up their program for the first time and think OMG i can never figure this out or something..
its not as hard as you think it is.. otherwise there wont be so many bebo skin makers here would there?? anyway, use your common sense... to get text/writing on the pic, you use the text tool... which one is the text tool?? well theres one with a letter "A".. so obv thats it same with brushes and stuff.. theres a brush sign etc etc
it took ruby & i sooo long to figure out all this(and we were making websites back then.. which are even harder!! ).. but we just tried everything out
xXx- Share the love if we helped

WHAT PROGRAM DO YOU USE?
LOADSSSS of people have asked me that question and its probably the most common one
i use Paint Shop Pro... i bought it in the shops, but you can download it for free online.
Just GOOGLE it and a site should come up.
Download the free trial..
Even though it says only 60 days trial or something i think you can still use it after then
But dont think you need this program to make skins.
You can even use MS Paint.. or Photoshop.. whatever program suits you
please tell us if we've helped
x x x x xx

This worked for me, so hopefully it would work for you too
when you click download there should be a box saying :
open, save, cancel
and click open.. then winzip(if you dont have it download it before you read ahead) should open..
then once its opened in winzip..right click and click extract.. then
●local disk C
then.. go to start and find local my computer ->>
disk C->> windows->> fonts.. to make sure its there
hope we have helped!! tell us if it did!!!
