Try going to the Invision official site and downloading a skin zip. then from that you work out required images to be made and what dimensions to have them.

If you've got FTP access try uploading the skin you just made under the file name of the default skin and replce the existing defualt skin.

You can't put up skins on invision forums like you can on other forums. You must go to this site: http://invisionfree.com/forums/ifskinzone/index.php You must register there. In the forums, look for the skins section, and once you found a good skin, you must copy and paste the CSS stuff (That long list that looks like html or something) and paste it into your 'manage style sheets' thing in the admin CP.

EDIT: There might be two lists, one for site footers and stuff, but you don't need that, you just need the CSS.
