Ok! here is a simple trick I used to advance my myspace profile and make it my way.
For those of you who don’t know this.

You can actually replace the images provided by free myspace layouts, change colors, size, style of the fonts on the profile, etc.

Here is what I did. I searched for the myspace layout I liked not necesserily style wise, but just the design with the layout I liked. Paste it in “About me” section in my profile and then started to make it my own. All you need to know is a little of coding or just some English.

I found the code where it was written “background-image:url (http://blahblahblah/blah.blha.jpg)” erased the URL and wrote my URL where my image that I loved was located “background-image:url (http://vadimages.com/ms/vadim-emo-web.jpg);” Saved my changes and when previewed my profile, it was my image that I designed on the background. For this part all you need to do is point the URL of where your image is at. (If you host a space on a server, it is easier to upload your images to the web, but if not there are other ways for that too)

How to change layout images to yours:

Then I did the same thing for contact’s background image, table background’s image, banner image, all the images. I didn’t really know what background image stood for what, but everywhere where there was a code “background-image:url(http://————.jpg);” I just rewrote pointing to my images on the web. And so this is how it turned out.

Change alignment, color, scrolling:

body {
background-color:000000;
background-image:url(http://vadimages.com/ms/vadim-emo-web.jpg);
background-position:top left;
background-attachment:fixed;
background-repeat:no-repeat;
}

Basically I got the code not exactly but something like that, so will you. then I rewrote to how I like it; scroll changed to fixed, top center to top left, etc.

I just played with the different options of coding and tested my profile to see how images and type will look. So you can play around with your codes like that and come up with something amazing.

Then, you can delete that bugging link to the original website of your layout and still have your profile design work just fine.

Hopefully this at least somewhat gave you the idea of what you can do just by messing with the codes given. Just by simply trying things out, testing and testing. All the examples in this post are what I’ve done using same codes and just changing some of it. Using the same layout, I created several totally different myspace profiles.
