Post Here Programs That Can Be Used When Creating Skins.

Trout's GIF Optimizer (A)
Adware to create smaller GIF files

Trout's GIF Optimizer shrinks GIFs without any noticable reduction of picture quality

It will even convert other graphics to optimized GIFs:
? Bitmaps (*.bmp)
? JPEGs (*.jpg; *jpeg)
? Icons (*.ico)
? Metafiles (*.wmf; *.emf)
Just drag-and-drop files then Save
Supports animated GIFs

New in GIF Optimizer
? create even smaller GIFs
? cut, copy and paste graphics to / from the Windows clipboard
? color reduction to create much smaller GIFs
? sort graphics in batch optimizations by name, size, bytes saved etc
? preview to compare the original graphics with the optimized GIFs
? Recursively search for graphics through folders and their subfolders
Get Email notification when there are more new features

Browser Person found this program that makes converting old skins a breeze!

It has a 30 day trial and is $19 after that.

Using it on skins extracts all the bitmap files in them. It seems to pull out the foreground image and background image as separate bitmap images (this is exactly what I wanted).

Thanks for sharing the links. This would be much easier rather than searching for them in google.
