Can't Make Avatar Small Enough?

Postby josh » Tue Aug 05, 2014 8:13 am

I tried to upload an avatar, but it has to be less that 6K in size. Couldn't figure out how to make my JPG small enough to fit! I tried reducing the quality to 0 (which makes it a big pixelated mess) but still to big... Image size is 100x80 pixels. Any tricks for making it work? Seems like it's pretty tight as... 80x100= 8000... so less than a byte per pixel.

attach it to a reply on this thread and maybe somebody will take pity on you and shrink it for you.

I wonder if the image is just too intricate and that's why it can't be compressed enough?

An 8-bit PNG would probably be smaller, too. Although really 6KB is stupidly small.

Worked like a charm and still looks good enough for me. Thanks JB!
