I’m trying to upload a new avatar but I cannot keep my file under 20kb, god knows how I uploaded my current one. Even when I decrease my image quality so it’s poor and pixelated it’s still over 20kb. Problem solved if I could host it myself and drop in the URL ?

How did you reduce that image without losing any quality, mate? Even when I optimise my new avatar with imageshack so it’s poor quality it’s STILL 26kb!

This is my file I’m trying to use as my new avatar: http://img135.imageshack.us/i/avatarnewk.jpg/

Mhm… let me guess… you’re using “Save as” instead of “Save for web and devices”?
