Put Text on Your Skin!

Thursday, February 11th, 2010

You guys asked for it, we’ve added it.  You can now put text anywhere on your skin and customize it the way you want!

To get started, click “Customize Page” (top right), then “Skin Builder” (last icon).  Once in the skin builder, click the “Text” tab.
Add Text To Your Page
Enter your text, then click the “Add text” button to add it to your page.

To change the color, size, and font-family of the text, click on the text and a new section should appear on the “Add text” window.

To reposition the text on your skin, click and drag it to where you want it displayed.

Please let us know what you think, and if there’s anything else you’d like to see added to StartSkins!
