Lightbulb Avatars

I know there are multiple threads about avatars on the site, but this one is a little different...

I'll be the first one to admit I'm not as good as other people on this site with computers (automobiles and guitars are a different story). I'm good, but not super-good. I would like to know, in a simple explanation, how to make my own custom avatar. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks-

Double-J

Choose a picture you want, open it in a paint program, edit it if you like, resize it, and voilá:

Your avatar (but you can't have one, yet).

1. make a screenshot
2. insert the part you like of this screenshot into a frame (take the frame from an existing avatar)

You can use Paint shop Pro for this task.

(hope that helped)

[edit] thanx ghost, I fixed it [/edit]

You could also upload your avatar to somewhere on the net and link your custom avatar to it


Note: Chaosfish's link is broken because of a typo apprently, true link is this

Unless Chaofish fixed it

save it as .gif because bmp is not a format you should use on the net (even though MSIE supports it)
