Stuck with the SkinEdit loading screen?
Just download this and put it in your SkinEdit folder, restart and it should load! This will disable the offline mode so you need to have a Internet connection to launch SkinEdit (due to notch previewer code).

SkinEdit is a simple graphics editor optimized for making Minecraft skins. It got many features to make it easier for beginners to understand how Minecraft skinning works as well as all the features even experienced skinners need. With over 1 million downloads so far it is the leading skin maker for minecraft!
Mirror for previewer
If you have problems seeing the previewer you can try to put in one of these two links when SkinEdit asks you for the download link. You can also put these in your web browser to download the file. Download it directly to the folder SkinEdit is located in or move it after you downloaded it.

Mobs reskin pack (fixed) (by: Notch, Patrik Swedman)
Unfortunately you can't preview them property, but at least you can use SkinEdit for some of your re-skin needs. Includes both a gray scale and a color version of every mob image (except zombie, which is the same as the player skin) in the size 640x320. (The problem with the color ones not being scaled has been fixed)
Improved spider template (Based of Spider Background above, by: Quiteblank)
A better template for making spiders
EiETemplate (by: The Eie)
A alternative to the normal backgrounds. Best viewed with a bright background and with around 70% alpha. (Will be included in alpha 3 pre 5)
