There are approximately 400+ skins that have been finished and are available at this site....for download and addition to your skins folder in Avant.

http://avant.getskinned.org/

There is also a skinning program called ABSF that you can download at this site:

Since this is something we can already do, I've moved this from Requests to Help.

If you look in the Avant Folder you'll see a Skin file. On my XP system the address is C:\Program Files\Avant Browser\Skins

If you have image hosting, you can post a screen shot here.

Or, If you take a look at Pip's post, you can register there and upload your skin for others to use.

That would negate registering. By deleting the account you used to upload your creation, you would be removing the creation you uploaded. Why would you wish to do such?.

What makes you so sure you will only use it once? What if you miss something in the skin or Avant is updated and can no longer use the old skins format and you want to update it?
