I'm a techno-idiot when it comes to the finer elements of the internet.

Can someone explain how to prepare an image to use as an avatar? I've tried to trim down a clip art picture to 100X100 pixels, but my memory is too much for the 100,000 byte limit (something like 300,000+).

Would you like me to make an icon for you?
Just attach the picture you'd like, or send me the URL
and I'll work the magic

if you'd like.

Here's an Avatar I made for Roger Smith, it should be the proper requirements, try it if you want, if you want it and it doesn't fit, lemme' know, I'll check its size...

Did i hear help on image makeing?

Open the image up.....it sounds like a bmp....so open it up in paint(windows) or photoshop(mac) or any program that can save an image as a different extention...

now save it as jpg/jpeg and there ya go...it should be well under the limit... unless there is something i dont know....

Thanks to you all for your help and info! I think I've got it to work, though nothing fancy, but it does the trick!
