Where does everyone get their custom avatars from? Everytime I find a good picture, I can't get it to the right size no matter how hard I try. Where do you get them from?

Remember, give people rep if they help you.
You can probably find all kinds of avatars or user pics if you search Google for either of those words, especially if you search for images rather than web pages. However, making your own avatar from a cool picture really isnâ€™t that difficult. You just need the right equipment.
When I need to resize pictures, I use a program called Xat Image Optimizer. It can be downloaded for free here. Just open your chosen picture in the program and start cropping, resizing and compressing it until it fits the forumâ€™s requirements for user pictures (128 x 128 pixels or 19.5 kb, whichever is smaller.) The only requirement is that the picture must preferably be a .jpg file, so remember to save your cool avatar image as such. Itâ€™ll take you five minutes to create a new user picture, and then simply upload it to LO using the â€˜Edit Avatarâ€™ function in your User CP.
Have fun! ^_^

mine i won from Mead ^_^ . he ran a little contest and me and three other guys won and he drew us great pictures of whatever we wanted. mine was my company champion.
Indeed, the best thing to do is as Grephaun said, simply take any picture you desire and resize it using a free image resizer (google it, there's dozens).
Made it myself from a screenshot from an old Terminator game for PC. Not so hard. Much harder was my Vampyrminator avatar (half-vampire face, half-terminator), that I'm not using on LO b/c scaled down to the required size it just looks like utter crap.
Not sure what extension that file had, but if you have a *.gif/png file and changes the image mode from indexed to rgb, then the scaling would get a much better resultOriginally Posted by the_fifth_horseman
