    you can convert any pic to png just look for a pic converter online .
    First converte ur pic to png after that you need to resize to 40x40.
    when you have done this just connect ur pre to ur pc in usb mode and drop in the palm pre disk make sure to rename the pic eg: playing.png to my-avatar.png and listo

    it can be any size as long as it's close to square... mine is like 800x800 or something.. the pre auto-resizes it to fit.
    if its there, try rebooting and see if it shows up in the messenger...

    doesn't matter as long as height and width are almost the same... depends on what looks good for you.

    well it resizes it automatically to 40x40, so if it already looks good at that it will look good for the messenger. I just haven't tried anything smaller yet, so i know larger will work fine, it just means a larger file so if space is an issue then resizing to 40x40 would help.

    yes, if your pre is in usb mode, drag to the drive and drop there. it will come up with everything else in there also. no additional folders needed. then reboot.
