I have posted this subject many times and I still think its something for members to look at.
When you find a picture that you want to use for your avatar, there are a few things that you should follow:
1) Has to be no larger than 85 x 85 pixel resolution
2) File can not be bigger than 30kb
3) File should be SAVED for the WEB
Following this rules and you should have a crisp clean avatar
Here is an example of an avatar that doesnt follow those rules:
Now this is an example that follows the rules
If you have any problems trying to make your avatar crisp, I would be more than willing to work on your photos.
If you are interested, please send the original photo to
