Oh so that's what that is!?! I kept looking at your avatar but couldn't make out what it was!!

Mine is from a picture taken of me outside the Parken stadium in Copenhagen moments before the doors opened, to see U2 live in concert last year! I just used my photo shop software to crop the pic, wrote "Just call me Ms Bono" and lighten up the back ground behind the text, stamped it with a heart and a three-leafed clover, then reduced the size!

very easy tutorial for windows users

open the picture you want an avatar of in paint

select the dotted square box left of the screen and use it to crop out the part you want your avatar to be...

make sure that it's the same lenght and width! like, 100 x 100, 555x555, the size doesn't matter, they just need to be the same!
you'll see it's wayyy too big for your avi

save the file (use bmp for now, it doesn't make you lose quality!)

download the free program Irfanview (use google to find it )

open the saved avatar with Irfanview

go to Image -> Resize/resample

make SURE the box 'preserve aspect ratio is ticked'

type 72x72 pixels

File --> Save as, select JPEG instead of bmp.... and save it ^^

if you need any help, just ask me.... I don't mind making them as long as you post the pic you want me to make an avi/sig of
