.WAL the fast in' easy way!
Hi this is my tutorial to fast and easy Winamp modern skinning:)

Lesson 1
Ok First things First you need to download the (simple skin.wal) you can get it at http://mikwiththestick.tripod.com/ click on "download file" then when you download it extract it all and put it into a new folder in your Winamp skins directory (Useally C:---Program Files --- Winamp --- Skins) After your done that open winamp and look at the skin i just had you paste in your skins directory. Once you are finished looking at it its time to get to work! First open up the folder called "gfx" then open up the picture called "base.png" in MSpaint GIMP or PSP I would recomend MSpaint for your first time. Then make it look like whatever you want it to a circle a square whatever floats your boat once you done that save your new look and open up your "skin.xml" in EditPlus 2 your skin.xml should look like this

Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
