    Default Creating avatars

    I was wondering where do you get your avatars from.
    Do you visit any special sites, or use google, or make them yourself?

    if anyone is interested in creating avatars,

    Here is lots of tutorials just for avatar making.
    (I wrote one of them: Santa hat tutorial)

    Sometimes I use photobucket for avatars, or if I want a decent resolution on a resized photo.

    I usually just think of someone, go to their website and look for pictures, or already-made avatars. But its hard to get ones that look good because they are too big for 80x80 and when they get resized they look shitty. I wanted to subscribe because i'm dying to have a big picture, like Mira. I'm jealous.

    With mine I just did a crop/resize of a Rocky Horror Picture Show screencap.

    I wish I had the Photoshop skills to create something more elaborate, but filters mystify and scare me.

    I use a photo-hosting account with a (minimized) picture.

    Thanks for the links! I like to try to make my own pics, I often surf the net and find a photo I like and then adjust it using one of the free image editors that I have found.
