    1) open it up in there
    2) Go to image ==> resize
    3) select Pixels from the drop-down boxes
    4) Change it to say 50 Pixels for both the width and the height
    5) Press OK
    6) Save the file (can have a different name if u want)
    7) try using that as your avatar

    Yeah, but it says '50x50 pixels or 19.5kb whichever is smallest so why doesn't it work, even it the original is maybe 60x60. I've seen some people with avatars bigger than 50x50.
