UPDATE!!! - Friday, July 21, 2006
Before sending me a message, please read this!!!!

All the skins I had on this site as well as any of the other skin download sites around the internet are for version 6 or before. THEY WILL NOT WORK IN THE NEWER VERSIONS. So pleaase, before you send me a note asking me why it doesn't work, check the version of Yahoo Messenger you have. There is nothing I can do to get things to work in a non-compatible version.

The swansong - Sunday, September 25, 2005
Due to an increase of demands for my time, and the length of time it takes to tweak new skins, I haven't been spending much time on skins lately. Add in also the fact that the constant updates to the Yahoo Messenger require continuous updates tothe skins, and I just do not have the time and energy to keep making them any longer. So, I've decided to stop making any new skins, and am changing the direction of this site in the upcoming months.
A while back, I bought some software to make screensavers, and in combination with my photography hobby, I've decided instead to use this site to showcase some of my screensavers. As of this time, all screensavers are expected to be free of charge, just as the skins were. Feel free to check the screensaver page, and download the current ones, and check back for updates throughout the year.

Go back to an old version and New Skin! - Tuesday, February 8, 2005
You can now go back to version 5.6 of Yahoo Messenger so that you can use all the older versions of skins on most sites! All you need to do is go to the Yahoo Help page and follow the instructions there (you have to uninstall the new version before installing the old one).
For those that know how to get rid of programs, you can go straight to the download link here: Version 5.6.
On the Yahoo page, I've also posted a new version of the Philadelphia Eagles skin for version 6.0. Sorry all you Philly Eagle fans, maybe next year. Coming from a Steelers fan who would have liked to see a cross-state or "Turnpike" Super Bowl! Here's to hoping for next year!

New Messenger Version Warning!!! - Sunday, May 30, 2004
Yahoo has released a new version and have switched to the same type of interface as WinAmp and a lot of other software. Problem is, skins will not be as easy to make as they were before, and converting them to the new version will be extremely difficult. If you do not want to lose the ability to use all your old skins, keep the old version 5.6. These skins will not work in version 6.

I am working on learning the new method to make the skins, so any new updates for YM6 will be a while. As I get the hand of it, I will work on updating all the older skins if possible.

New Site Interface - Wednesday, February 29, 2004
The site has been given a new look. It involves layers to present the second set of links along the top and a return to the text based site. This is intended to help those using dial-up connections from having to sit through the lengthy download time of the version 5 site.

Award winning skin - Saturday, January 31, 2004
I'd like to take a moment to thank all the people that stopped by EZ Skins and downloaded my Philadelphia Eagles skin. Out of 15 days, it ranked as the top download 12 of those days. To see the list of days it ranked as the top download, and the download totals, click here. (disabled)

Donations - Sunday, June 06, 2003
While all the skins available here are free, for those that enjoy them, and wishing to donate a few bank notes, you can do so using the PayPal form below.

Messenger News - Friday, June 06, 2003
While I prefer Yahoo Messenger due to all the additional modification it allows you to make in your skin, or theme, MSN Messenger has a larger user base. Hopefully, one day soon, they will come out with the option to change the appearance without doing it manually.
I recently sent a note to the MSN Support Team asking in reference to adding the ability to change the appearance of MSN Messenger.

About the skins here - 2003
Every skin here has been used by myself or a friend at one point or another. If you find any issues with any here, please let me know and I will try to fix them. If I cannot fix them, I will change it so that it looks better.
Make sure you have the latest version of YM here or MSNM here. If you haven't downloaded skins before, I have the instructions on how to get the files in the correct location at the top of the MSNM and Yahoo! pages. To make things easier, just download the .exe files and it will automatically download the YM skins into the correct folder (unless you installed the program somewhere other than the default location).
All the theme pages will have an image of what the theme will look like when loaded into your messenger program. Just click the "preview" link provided next to each to view the skins/themes.
Thanks for stopping by and please check back for more skins.
