Create a skin
To create a skin for Beautiful Widgets, you need to download the Skin Development Kit : SDK
In this package you will find some folders with examples on how to create skins.
Take care of the readme.txt file and these following things if
you want your skin to be processed faster :
.txt file :
- Always come back to the line after adding a value :
skinname=blablaauthor=toto is wrong.
The correct way is this one :
The preview file is a ".jpg" and not a ".png", do not rename your preview in .png using your file explorer. You should pass through a picture editor program.
Always name exactly the same your zip file, the "txt" and "jpg" files without spaces.
For the Super Clock skin, verify that you understand the line system for stretching to avoid problems in your skin. A post have been done there for a better understanding : Droidforums - Beautiful Widgets
For OSX, when you compress a folder to a .zip with the normal file explorer, it adds some files (.folder). Try to use another software like KeKa to keep the zip clean.
Once finished, you can send your skin to support at levelupstudio.com with the skin type (Normal / Super Clock / Battery...) and the name of it in the subject of the mail.
