After learning photoshopping and a little XML and HTML I thought to create something.Then i decided to create Yahoo Messenger Skins and then decided to write a tutorial for you all.
Before starting this tutorial I would like to tell you that you should know little bit about photoshopping.
- Goto “%Programfiles%\Yahoo!\Shared\Graphics” folder & there you will see following folders naming ;
After doing this folow Step2
- Now copy all the stuff from Maverick folder and paste it in "Gagan" folder that you made in earlier.
Note : The images that you edit should be saved with same size and format.
- This was about images.We also have to change the text,colour,fonts,font size also. Dnt worry they are much easier.To change fonts size and text you have to edit the XML file..As we have copied all the stuff from Maverick folder then obviously we have to edit maverick.xml file.
You can edit AuthorNameAuthorURL,Signature etc, anything you like and then click on SAVE
That's it now you are ready with your own skin
