Ah, this is how to make a preview image:

If you are submitting a Skin, Flash Animation, or a file in a format that cannot be converted by our conversion system to an image, you will also need to upload a separate Preview image to show in your Gallery and on Browse pages. Preview images must either be a jpeg, png or gif file and be 150x150px or smaller in width and height. To upload a preview image click on "add file" again and add your preview image from your computer to your File Deck. Now it's uploaded, click on the file you want as your deviation to select it and it will be highlighted blue. When you do this you'll notice below the file deck it will ask you for a preview image, click on the "choose" button and select the image file you uploaded for the preview.
