How do I make my avatar a picture of my skin?

Anything that isn't Minecraft-related or doesn't go anywhere above goes here.

I've seen lots of people where their avatar was a picture of their skin. Now there was lots of different combos like only the head, the entire body, the body running, and so on. All I want to know is how do I do that. Anyone care to explain?

For my avatar, I took a screenshot while I was in the inventory screen, and then used an image editing program to crop it so that it was small enough.

Just make a skin, and cut the face in some editor, Paint works, you can resize it, it doesn't take any quality since its very pixelated...hope I helped :)

Thnx! I was kind of hoping I would learn how to do the entire skin, but I'll try it!

I opened up my skin in Nova Skin Editor, spent like 10 minutes positioning it just right, and took a screenshot.
(I am physically, mentally, and spiritually unable to fill this space with anything original or creative, therefore your argument is entirely valid, but at the same time it isn't because I just insulted myself to prove a point.)
