Avatars - Solved

Post by dachshundonstilts » Sat Feb 25, 2017 11:43 pm

I am having terrible trouble creating an avatar. I keep shrinking and shrinking the image, but can't get it under the preposterous size limit of 6 Kb. Is there any way to raise that limit?

I don't know, as of yet. It has to be 90x90, as well.

Yeah, I got it to 90x90, but the JPG was still 27.7 Kb. When I reduced it to 52x52, it was still over 21 Kb.

I had a little trouble, too. I ended up using a different picture of Lillian.

Good news!! I fixed it. You should be able to use your original image.

I had to trim mine down a little. The size of the file was ok in kb, but I had to crop and reduce the size down to 150 by 150 pixels. The avatars look good though—they're nice and big, though it takes some getting used to seeing them on the right. :-)

Btw, are there emoticons available?

Edit: I see them now—didn't go to full editor. :lol:

I can make the image size bigger. Let me find out about the last one :)

See my edit above.

Wish the dancing banana from the old GS was here. I miss that one. :D
