I'm new to using avatars and until today was just using avatars that I found on the web. I wanted to make one but didn't know how. I did a Google search and found a site that will re-size your photo to the size you want. Avatars on FWW have a max. size of 180. After you have created your avatar, be sure to right click on the avatar and click "save as" to you computer. This maybe old hat to a lot of you but for those that haven't here is the link to the site I found.
