Default How do I get an avatar?

How do I get an avatar? Where do people get them? I tried to use one
of my photos, but I got a "file to large" message. I'd like to have a
picture of an A1 skyraider as my avatar. Please help.[sm=confused.gif]

Usually the software you open your photos in will have an option under either "edit" or "image" to re-size image. Change the pixels horiz or vertical until it's the size you need. Same deal for uploading photos in posts - I usually shrink my 12Mb pics down to about 400kb, so can post several at a time.
