Amazing. Just what I needed. Thanks a lot!
There's another way without actually having to do the edges using the pencil tool and wasting time, though: (Applicable only if you have PhotoShop)
Once you've resized the sprite in paint (Don't do it in PS, it uses its stupid filters on the picture), open it in Photoshop. Then right click on the only layer that there is. Choose "Blending Options" and then "Stroke". Set the thickness to 1, and set the color to what the border is (black, in most cases).
Great tutorial except I don't use it that way.
I take drawings from online, shrink, and pixelate.
Pixelate? Can you tell me how, please? I started making custom pokemon, and I did some really really good ones, but I made them 80x80 by accident. And now they look all crappy when I resize them. I'd like to save some time and effort. Can you please specify what you do, exactly? Thanks!

yeah that's useful, but there is a much easier to do resize, just resize it on microsoft word by the copy and paste technique so that the pixels dont mess up like what happens when you resize on paint.
