Hey all wondering if you could help me with something here. Was trying to downsize an image to fit the 14.6kb avatar requirement and either can't get a sharp image due to saving at poor quality or get a very small image.
In more recent times a 100pixel by 53pixel image was a whopping 60kb even at jpg image quality 3. Argh... Can anyone help?

Noticed some people have large good quality avatars, how is this acheived

Just remove the EXIF data in the Jpeg. Your current avatar contains probably <2kb of image data and the rest is EXIF info.

I used Irfanview to resave your avatar at 95% quality Jpeg without the EXIF info and it shrunk from 14.4 kb to 1.6kb

using photoshop, save your pictures as SAVE FOR WEB, then adjust until you can fit the limit. use JPEG format.

I use Paintshop Pro 8 to edit my pictures. When saving in jpeg, it has diff compression settings, as well as to save exif data or not.
