Sorry to moan but,......I finally gave up on trying to u/l an avatar here. I took it down to 100x100, B&W at 0 quality , a crummie looking pic and it was still too large.

Thanks, don't know why mine won't go. I'm using photoshop cs. Max allowable here is 15kb, that is below the lowest setting in photoshop cs as far as quality. Most any forum I have been on is a bit more generous for avatar size, as this is the first time I have had this happen anywhere.

I think I'll just pass, it's not really all that important that I have one up, but I appreciate your offer.

trtjazz, did you try saving your avatar as .gif? Mine here was a lot bigger when I saved it as .jpeg, and was "noisy" at low qualities. But as a .gif, it worked perfectly.

Terry, a really tiny and very useful/stable program I've been using for a while to resize pics (great for this site especially) is XP powertoys resize. It works a charm, and takes up no space at all.

It's the eighth one down on the right

All you have to do is right click on any pic, and you'll then see the options to resize. For the avatar, choose the "advanced" option, where you can then set your own pixel size. I used it for my avatar, which I shot a few days ago. It's 200x200

I used the freeware Irfanview to resize my picture of my dog until it was acceptable without a problem.
