    Is it still limited to 60x60 pixels, because I've seen quite a few banner-length avatars.

    If there are no pictures on your computer, make your own. All my AVs are made by myself, which guarantees that no one else will have them.

    The only thing with this is if you aren't very good with computers, like the person in question said, it might not be very easy. i agree with making your own if you can though-mine is home made.

    Do a search on google or something, find the one you want. With your mouse, press the right mouse button over the picture. Then click on save picture as.

    After you have done that come back here, attach the pic to a post & as someone to re-size it for you.

    I usually do this but just upload one thats the right size already.

    But then I'm dead lazy like that. :thumb:
