Exclamation How to Make A Simple Avatar

Here is my guide, on how to make an EXTREMELY simple avatar is MS Paint.
Provided with pictures!


Step 1: Open Paint, create a new document, 100x100 px, and select the paint bucket tool.
Click the image to open in full size.

Step 2: Select any color, and fill in the white with the desired color for your background. For this, I will be using a green.
HINT: For a custom color, double click on any color in the palette. Then, click define custom colors. Choose one of the white squares below, then in the panel to the right, move the tabs until you find your perfect color! Click add to custom colors to finish.
Click the image to open in full size.

Step 3: Now, for a picture. Add anything you want, by merely copying and pasting. You can resize it, if you want. I will be using an easter duck.
HINT: If you want to add anything to the background, do it before you add the picture!
When you have the rectangle picture, look down. here are two boxed options. Choose the lowest one.
Click the image to open in full size.

Step 4: Border Time! Using the solid rectangle tool, (the rectangle with a blue inside,), choose any color you want and make a border.
HINT: To really make it pop, move the border 1 pixel from the edge and do it from there.
Click the image to open in full size.

Step 5: Add Some Text! Choose any color you want, and click the A button in the side palette. Click and drag a box, choose a style and size, and type! To choose the style, right click inside the box and click text toolbar.
HINT: If you want, use a large text, then a tiny one for side text, like what I did.
Click the image to open in full size.

Step 5: Upload it and you are done! Though, I feel it's plain, so I'm adding a few polka dots in the background. You can add anything you want, too!

Here is my finished product!
Click the image to open in full size.

This brings us to the end. I hope you like it! Keep your eyes peeled for my next How-To. And advanced tutorial!

those things may seem pretty simple to some. i for one am not that technologically gifted and would much rather have someone make one for me. my idea seems fairly simple but dont know who to ask to do it.

I understand. This guide was made for others, assuming they have /some/ basic knowledge. If you say you want an avatar but you don't know who to ask, PM me any time if you want one. =)

This is a fabulous guide! It is very simple, but something I think many will want to know to do. This also provides some basic paint tools that people can use to go bigger. Kudos on a fabulous thread! I will direct all those who are wondering to this great guide!
