Just plug your images in there, select text color and stuff, then generate the code and paste it into your journal.

The first one is probably easier, you can select your color like in an art program then just copy the code.

(there are links to those in the first section in blue, color picker 1 and 2)

Saving as a text file just means copy and save or paste the text.

If you want to just apply it to your journal, just copy it then paste it to the skin part of the journal. Select the text, ctrl+c to copy, then put it where you want it with ctrl+v.

If you want to save it onto your computer, copy the text then open word processing program (notebook, microsoft word, openoffice, etc), paste the text into it, then save.

FAQ #67: How do I share Journal Skins?


Submit it for you to use on your journal, or to share with other people?

To put it in your journal, open it to make a new entry. On the left hand side of the screen you'll see your skin options. It will say 'Current Skin' with an option to 'edit skin'.

Click on Edit and paste the code into the boxes.


If you want to share it, submit under 'deviantart journal skins', paste the code into the text box. If you are using images from off this site you'll be asked to submit those, too. Just follow the prompts.
