The template is a PSD file which can opened by photoshop amongst a few other things, the reason being simple apps like MSPaint do not support layers which can make shifting things around more difficult (shifting things around is one of the most common tasks in skin making).
Next I suggest grabbing a premade skin and looking at its contents (you will get one bundled), your skin will replace some if not all of the pictures.
For the first few skins I suggest going the screengrab route and grabbing pictures from your favourite cartoon/TV series or Film, you could also use some random pictures you have lying around).
You are going to want to resize the images and insert them into the files.
- Download an existing skin.
- Unzip it to somewhere on your PC. You will notice it is made up of a series of JPEGs.
- Open each JPEG in a paint program, draw on them and save over the file.
- Download and install EZ-Skinner
- Copy ezfla_up.bin to the EZ-Skinner directory
- Run EZ-Skinner and point it to your images
- Hit the "skin it" button and it will create a new ezfla_up.bin incorporating your newly created skin.
- Put the new ezfla_up.bin onto your Micro-SD and reflash your EZ4 (hold R while booting in GBA mode)

i did make the skin but i do i put the pictures in the right size
btw what is vista and can i get past it????
Vista is your operating system. The thing that makes all those fancy windows and graphics on your computer. The thing that gets rid of light bulbs and electrical switches being considered a computer.
To "get past it" you have some options:
a) backup all the files on the computer and install Windows XP
b) get another computer that has (or can be installed with) Windows XP
c) you might be able to emulate Windows XP with vmWare Workstation
d) ask your parents if the computer already has Windows XP (or Windows 2000) on it but Windows Vista is the main operating system. if they say yes, ask them to show you how to get to Windows XP (or Windows 2000)
