I found an easier way. Simple download this app and have your skin that you want to convert set on your Minecraft PC account if you have one. Then use the skin stealer and from there import the skin into your Photos and you're good to go. If you don't have a PC account then I'm afraid I can't help you. So sorry! Also, it seems for me that changing it to a 64 x 64 made it work, not 64 x 32. May be different I don't know. Have fun!
Can somebody convert this? I am not doing it correctly when I try.
Also, a bit of background on the issue, this problem comes up because PC updated the skin format to the new 64x64 template in 1.8, but PE still uses the 1.7 format. Luckily, the upper-half of the skin is still the same so you can just convert it in any old picture editing program that supports transpearency, including "GIMP 2" or "Paint.net" and probably others I havent heard of. But the "Paint" application that comes with Windows unfortunately doesn't support transparent (see-though) pixels, thus making the "hat" layer all messed up.
", palatino, serif">I need help. I'm trying to get my Minecraft pe skin to my computer but I don't know how. Can you help me?
If you are using a custom skin that you uploaded via your phone's hard drive, then it will be in your phone's photos, if it is just plug your phone (or whatever device you're using, you really didn't tell me anything) into your computer with a USB charger thing, and then you can open the phone's hard drive like a flash drive, and then extract the skin's texture from there.
But I have no idea what your situation is, because you really didn't tell me anything, so this might be no help to you.
