make it roughly the size of an avi. 75x75 pixles. then save it as a .jpeg (it should be the dropdown bar below where you put the name of the image while you are saving it.) then it should work

if you still have trouble, go here, and download the program, and uses its 'resize' feature to bring it to 75x75pixels save it as a jpeg and it will work.
