Trying to make an avatar

I can't figure out how to make my avatar as clear as everyone else's is. By the time I get it to 125 x 125 pixels it is 8.77 kb and it looks fuzzy. Any suggestions?

Thanks.

It's VERY heavily compressed, what your seeing is jpg artifact. Is there an original photo you can post?

I still think you are awesome, but the width is 126 and when I adjust it to 125 I lose all the clarity again.

Whatever utility your using to save the images is compressing them too much. I fixed it, the utility I used to resize the image was set to a max W or H of 125, but for some reason it anchored on the width and that caused the height 1 pixel (actually only a percentage of the pixel) larger than 125. Anyway, I fixed it and added a bit more PhotoShop magic and added it as your avatar.
