It’s alot easier than you think to give your MySpace page some zing! Adding a Background is the first thing you can do and it’s alot easier than you might think. The second thing is to put some cool Graphics on your MySpace page and doing that is easy as well. Once you get the hang of it you’ll be changing and adding Graphics all the time. Here are some simple ways to spice up your MySpace page.
Having a cool looking background is the first thing you can do to liven up your page. First you have to have a code to put into your profile, there are several sites that have codes and graphics for MySpace but we’ll use this one, http://www.freecodesource.com/
Scroll down to where it says “Top Rated MySpace Layouts” and click on the where it says, “View all Top Related Layouts”
A new page will appear and you can choose a category, lets go with ‘Anime’, click on that and you will go to another page. Scroll down until you see the pictures and click on one that you like. You will be taken to another page, scroll down past the picture you see until you see where it says, “Code for Layout”, you will now need to ‘Copy’ this entire code that’s in the box.
Copying a code is easy. Just click on the code to highlight it or you may need to take your mouse, and place your cursor at the beginning of the text in the box, then click and hold the left mouse button, while pulling your mouse over the text. This should highlight the text. Now release the left mouse button and with the cursor over the highlighted text, right click the mouse for options, and select ‘Copy’.
Now go back to your MySpace page and click ‘Edit Profile’. Now you need to ‘Paste the code you just copied into the ‘About me’ field. Anywhere in this box is fine.
‘Pasting’ the code is easy. Just move your cursor to the box your going to ‘Paste’ in and right click on the mouse, then click on ‘Paste’, your code has just been pasted into your profile. Now scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page and click on “Save All Changes”.
You now have a Background Layout! Wasn’t that easy? In order to see what your MySpace page looks like click on the top on the page where it says, “Home” and then once you’re back on your page click on “View My Profile” right below where your picture is. This is the page people see when they go to your page.
Now if you want to add graphics to other parts of your MySpace page, that is easy too. Go back where you got the code from, here. http://www.freecodesource.com/
See where it says ‘Graphics’ on the left hand side? Click on that and then click on the subject you want, let’s say we clicked on “Animated”. Ok, you with me so far? Now you see those pictures on this page? Find one you like and click on it, which will take you to more of those kinds of graphics. Find a graphic you like and click where it says, “Click here for Code”, then you are going to ‘Copy’ the code and go back to your MySpace page.
Ok, now that we’re back on our MySpace page let’s click on ‘Edit Profile” again and find a place to ‘Paste’ the code. I Put some Graphics in the box that says, “I’d like to meet” or one of the other boxes is fine too. Now you already know how to ‘Paste’ the code so do that in the box and scroll down to ‘Save All Changes’. You have now put a Graphic on your page.
There are many sites that have free Graphics and Layouts. You can always ask your friends and family where they got theirs, or do what I did and when you see a Graphic you really like on someone else’s page, just ask them where they got it. Most people are very nice and helpful.
Have you ever gone to someone’s MySpace page and all of the sudden you hear music playing? Well you can have that too. Go back to ‘Edit Profile’ on your page and click on ‘Song and Video on Profile’ now you see where it says, “Profile song”? Click on ‘Find a Band in MySpace Music” and in the box that says ‘Keyword’ type the name of a band you like and click on ‘Search’, I picked Disturbed.
Now the band should come up, click on the one you want and when you get to the Band’s page look on the right hand side and click ‘Add’ that’s next to the song you want to add. A new page will come up that gives you two options, either ‘Add Song to Profile’ or ‘Cancel’, if this is the song you’d like to add then click ‘Add Song to Profile’ , if not then click on ‘Cancel’ and try another band or song.
Soon you’ll be a pro at adding things to your page and people will be asking you how to do it. Have fun with it.
