Getting an avatar under 20kb?

#1 Post by Jigga » Mon Apr 02, 2012 5:02 pm

Hi everyone, I cant seem to get my jpeg images from my pc to reduce in size enough to use as my avatar..
It says 20kb is max size limit, and I have tried resizing my pics until they are a pin dot size in Ms paint, and they still seem to be like 30-50kb? Does anyone know how to get a picture under the 20kb?
Cheers..

G'day Jigga,

Try sizing the photo down maintaning a 100 pixel by 100 pixel ration. I use a Mac so it's pretty easy to do with iPhoto. But MSPaint should do the same thing.

Also, does it give you the compression ratio of the .jpg file? If so, adjust that to allow for a smaller size.
Cheers,
Kevin
