Now you must decide what type of icon to make. This is easy, choose from Avatars or Emoticons. You can change your icon type later.
In section 2 you can see your picture with a selection tool on top of it. What you see in the square is what will be shown in your icon, areas outside the square will not be in your icon.
You can move the square by dragging it or change the size by pulling on the corners.
