Negatively/positive skewed and correlation

can someone explain how we would know if it was positively or negatively skewed if they were to give us a graph. Also, how do we know if its a negative or positive correlation just by looking at the dot chart

As you can see above, if x is going up, y is going up (POSITIVE)
If X is going up, Y is going down (NEGATIVE)
