You can edit the background.png in photoshop to make it look better.

If you are able to switch skins and it looks good, add all the files to a .zip, include a text file with your contact information and the wallpaper details, like title and description and send it to:

So, I may have found a solution to your problem. I had the same problem and I had to re-take the images over about 2 times. Sometimes one zoom in and zoom out in Mine-imator is the problem. Notice how in the picture it seems that all the skins shifted all together? Sadly you cannot undo zoom in and zoom out in Mine-imator, hope this helps!

Cinema 4D is another way

Is the wallpapers@novaskin.me an email adress?

the test page doesn’t work, but at least I got this.
