Import Your Skin

So you’ve done it, you’ve completed your first skin design. Now you want to deploy it to Minecraft!

Here’s the big idea of how it works: 

Step 1. Paint Your Skin in Tynker. Make sure to get every section of your skin! Click and drag to rotate. Click to hide elements of your model, too, using the 3D model in the bottom right. This will help you paint any “hard to reach” places. 

Step 2. Download Skin. When you’re finished, download your skin as an .PNG  file, and remember where you save your file.

Step 3. Let’s See It! Then launch Minecraft. Click on Dressing Room from the Minecraft start screen. Navigate to the Classic Skins tab, choose Owned > Choose New Skin, then select your file. Choose the correct body type. Now start Minecraft and play!

Still wondering: How can I see my skin? On Windows, press F5 to cycle through different cameras (first person, over-the-shoulder, and so forth). On iPad, find camera controls in your Settings (Pause >  Settings > Video > Camera Perspective).
