    You can downsize that photo on Microsoft Paint, and also on Microsoft Picture 2000. Hope that helps!

    Thanks Renee... What dimensions should I put in?

    You know that HUGE number that pops up when you try to post something LARGER than that number??? Make sure it's smaller than that number. I'd make it no bigger than a 2X2 if you are planning to use it as an avatar.
