Learning to develop skins

Post by stretch622 » Mon Oct 21, 2013 8:14 am

Hi every one,
I hope I am putting this in the right place?
I am a new user with probably limited skills but I want to have ago at learning how to make a skin. Is there any tutorials that I can read up on? Or any one that can help? Because of work commitments my reply's and visits may take a few days.

Thanks for the reply, I had already found that page and also Fast Newbie's Skinning walkthrough, I have been trying to work through the later one. I have down loaded a skin and copied it from downloads to Program Files (86) >MediaMonkey>Skins.
The problem I have now is that it is there as a MediaMonkey Package file instead of a MSZ file and i don't seam to be able to do any thing with it other than opening it which opens MediaMonkey?
