    Default how to make avatar?

    hi guys, ok this might sound stupid coz i already have an avatar. But my avatar is v blur i tried alot of ways but couldn't make normal pics small enough to post as avatar. The file size just keeps getting bigger when i try to resize a thumbnail in photobucket.
    Can someone enlighten me on how to make a nice clear avater? (preferrably using Photoshop)

    Really quite simple just need to read it and play with it a little. Makes my day!!

    Now if I can simply improve on my shoots by just reading and playing with my D70 settings a little that would be great but it looks like it is harder to get a good shot then I thought. Well as they say practise makes perfect!! I hope this is easier then said.

    yoz thanks guys... i tried the webby and it was neat work manz. When i use photoshop and resize till 100 x 100, then when i save it as jpeg, they'll prompt me for the quality, but mostly i'll have to save in v low quality to make it as avatar (sad).
    now this method is much simplier.
    Thanks
