You can either use an image from your hard drive or add an image from the internet.
Please keep in mind of the size requirements (no larger than 450x450 pixels. If you need to resize any pic, you can do it free online at http://www.picresize.com/
To add an image from your hard drive, click Browse and select the picture.
To add an image from the internet, right click the image and either choose “Properties” on Internet Explorer, the copy the Address (URL) or on Firefox, right click and select “Copy Image Location”.
The link will look something like this and should end in .jpeg, .jpg, .gif or .png
Paste the link into the box that says, “or URL”
You’re going to have to experiment a lot in customizing your settings. I won’t have the free time to personally help everyone do this as I work between 12-15+ hours every day on my websites.
The Position option shows the location on your profile where the image will be shown.
The Attachment option gives you a choice whether you want your image to move when someone Scrolls your profile or whether you want it Fixed in position, where it will remain in the Position you have chosen above.
The Repeat option will duplicate the image down and/or across your profile.
As for colors and links, try to pick colors that are easily readable with the profile background color and image that you have selected.
Keep experimenting until you get exactly what you want! Your profile is your palate and you are the artist!
UPDATE: I uploaded a bunch of custom profile skins at the NEW GROUP FREE CUSTOM SKINS!!!
