OK guys,if you want to here is a very easy way to make your favorite teams skin with minimal effort.

Choose a downloaded skin.Go to: Documents>Sports Interactive>Football Manager 2009>Skins>The Skin your editing>Graphics>Backgrounds. There you will see the background picture,usually called default.

Now go on google and search for wallpapers and pictures of your favorite team,find one you like (i recommend a dark coloured one if possible) get it as big as possible and save it.Now open your pictures and drag it to the backgrounds overwriting the default,it must be called the same as the picture your replacing.

Now go to your FM09 game load the edited skin.

This will work on any skin you like quite easily,here ive edited the turnstyle skin.

Nice one mate :), any chance of doing this on the original or any more FM Skins ?​
Well thats logical,which one is wembley? you can delete any background you dont like as long as you name the replacement picture the same number as the one you deleted and remember when selecting on the game it will still be called by the one you replaced,wembley sky etc.
can you just add pictures to the background folder in a skin file then? im having real problems loading any type of downloaded skinm
