How to Create Yahoo! Messenger Skins?





1. Go to "%Programfiles%\Yahoo!\Shared\Graphics" folder. You'll see following 2 folders under it:
    Indigo
    Maverick
These folders contain the skins which you see in Yahoo! Messenger Skins List. So if you want to create your own skin, copy any of these 2 folders and paste it again, it'll create a new folder. Rename the folder to any name which you want to set as your skin's name.
2. Now open this new folder and you'll see lots of images there. You can customize those images according to your requirement.
3. To change the text color, text size, button locations, etc, you can use the XML file present in this folder. It's name would be skin_name.xml (e.g. indigo.xml, maverick.xml). You'll need to modify first few lines in this file:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<skin version="2007.11.07.1"
compatible="2"
AuthorName="Rupesh Verma"
AuthorURL="http://rupeshhacktheworld.blogspot.com"
Signature="Microsoft MVP"
SkinName="Y! Vista by Rupesh Verma"
PreviewImage="preview_Y!_Vista.jpg">
You can change them to set your name and skin name.
4. That's it. Once you finish, you can apply the skin using Yahoo! Messenger.
