You pick your favorite character from the movie Rounders, download an image of him (or her), and resize it. I use Windows paint.

From the FAQ button on the upper left of this screen -
How do I display an avatar?
Within your User Control Panel, under “Profile” you can add an avatar by using one of the four following methods: Gravatar, Gallery, Remote or Upload. It is up to the board administrator to enable avatars and to choose the way in which avatars can be made available. If you are unable to use avatars, contact a board administrator.

I use Image Optimizer, and set my desired output to be 100x100 pixels. But even then it isn't accepted by Bogleheads, so I crop a bit off the edges and then it's always accepted. http://www.imageoptimizer.net/Pages/Home.aspx
It was a new day yesterday. It’s an old day now.

A New Year's "To Do" For posters that don't have an avatar yet, here's some instructions and links on how to do it. :D

There are quite a few threads on this. Just "google search" the archives for "Avatar"

I see from your OP you've figured it out. Good choice. He was a great man.
The surest way to know the future is when it becomes the past.
