You’ll be able to upload your own Skins (an 800×135 bitmap) and then see them in the Skin Center! Then, vote on your favorite skins… You create the content, you pick the winners!
For more information and instructions click here to read the rules.
You can go to the Art Gallery and choose an image to modify or simply make your own. An eligible Skin must be 800 pixels wide by 135 pixels high and no more than 256 colors (8 bit indexed).
All uploading and inputing of information regarding your skin is automatic from the Contest page.
Only registered members will be able to upload their skins, so register now!. We’ll also be adding similar capabilities for the Art Gallery soon too!
Currently, Hotbar Skins are only available on Internet Explorer–it installs an Active X plugin, so just go ahead and click “Ok” when you’re prompted to install it! Fret not Netscape Users…Hotbar is hard at work on building the Netscape version.
