I usually open something in Microsoft Office Picture Manager, then go to picture, and click resize.

I always use photoshop, but gimp is pretty much the free (lesser) version of photoshop. If you PM me your photo with instructions on what you want, I'll resize it for you.

Yeah this, but GIMP should work for any OS so just use that. Crop it and resize it.

Ah, good point - I keep forgetting GIMP is available for all of them now.

OP: Though GIMP can be a bit scary looking when it opens, just use the File->Open to get your picture, then resize via Image->Scale Image. Then save it like any other program.

Yep, but remember the ratio of the image is just as important as the size. You don't want to squish it up or have it elongated horozontally or vertically. So crop it to a nice variable then resize it accordingly.

Example: The maximum resolution for an image on FAF is 150x150 pixels, but if the image is 500x600 you'll have to crop it to be square first then resize it to 150x150. Also the maximum file size is 50kb's, for most images simply saving it at a .png will keep the size low, however if an image is at 150x150 and you can't seem to get it lower than 50kb's you'll have to lower the quality a little. It's more complected but you can lower the quality without it being visually noticeable, not sure how to do this with GIMP myself, haven't used it in a while.

How about this, upload the image you want as your avatar onto http://filesmelt.com/ and link it here, I'll do it for you. <3

Edit: I realize FA is 100x100 and FAF is 150x150 so I'll make you one of both resolutions that you can use.

Aye - as Newf said, mind the ratio. By default GIMP will maintain the aspect ratio of the original image. If you have to crop it, the took in GIMP is under Image->Canvas Size. You just click the little link picture between the two size measurements and set them accordingly.
