    1. Choose a picture.

    2. Crop it down and then resize it to 90x90 pixels and less than 6,000 bytes. That's 6KB.

    3. Host the image on Imageshack.com.

    4. Open the GT User CP> Profile and insert the URL where the avatar is stored. Alternately it can be uploaded from your PC and GT's servers will host it for you; I preferred to go with imageshack.

    5. Save Changes and you are golden.
