How to download Minecraft skins
Are you bored of playing as the boring old Steve in Minecraft? Do you want to change things up a bit and play as someone fantastic? Characters like SpongeBob and Iron Man seem a lot more fun than some plain Steve, don’t they? Well, why don’t you go and download those skins ASAP! That can be easily done online and websites like skins4minecraft.com are absolutely perfect for that.
If you are not sure on how to download skins for Minecraft on your PC, then here we are to help! Follow these step-by-step instructions and you will face no trouble.
The first thing you need to know is that there are three main ways with which you will be able to download the skins, yet we chose to present you with the easiest, most obvious one. You don’t need any extra troubles, do you?
Open the website which you think is safe and has the best skins! The skins4minecraft.com we have already mentioned would be great, though you can browse the web for as long as you would like. The website will have a library, which is often called a Skindex Library.
Now you have to select the character you would love to play as. Tip: you can also search for a specific one from the ‘search’ bar if you already know what you want!
Once you have chosen your character, click on the picture to proceed to the actual download.
Find the ‘Download’ button and click it. It will prompt the file of the skin to put in on your PC.
The file will be in a standard .png format, which is the format for all the Minecraft skins.
Open the Minecraft website (https://minecraft.net/). Click the ‘Menu’ button, which is in the top-right corner of the page. In a drop down menu click ‘Profile’ and LOG IN if you haven’t.
Click ‘Browse’ and ‘select a file’, which is a white button near the bottom of your screen. If you are a Windows user and can’t seem to find your file, try to look into your default ‘Downloads’ folder.
Select your skin file and click ‘Open’. Your skin will then be uploaded to your profile.
Click ‘Save & Upload’ to have your skin officially changed! Now, if you log into the Minecraft app on your computer with the same account credentials, you will find your character with a fresh makeover!
Now, how, would you ask, is it possible to download a skin on Minecraft for my Mac?
Easy! You don’t really have to do anything groundbreaking – the steps are pretty much the same.
Browse the web for a new skin – places like the one we already mentioned (skins4minecraft.com) or Skindex have the best libraries through which you can scroll until your eyes hurt.
Once you have found the one that fits your personality, download it. The process is exactly the same – it will be a simple image file in the good old .png format.
Go to Minecraft.net and log into your account. Click the ‘Profile’ button, which is situated at the top of the page and scroll down to see the ‘Change how you look in Minecraft’ section.
Click the ‘Choose file’ button and proceed to upload your file.
Start the Minecraft app and check out your new look!
