Radcliffe - what/who are you using to host your avatar? Sometimes they go a bit funny for a day or two, or if you have been using the same avatar for ages you may have to rename the picture and rehost it.
Thankyou that may be my problem then cos ive been using the same one for nearly half a year i'll try that :)

Oops! I followed Hayley's instructions and went to TinyPic hosting so that I could use this lovely pic of Mark as my avatar - and now it's huge!!

Should I keep it or not, do you think! :lol:

Hi!

I'm having some trouble making my own av's file size small enough - can't seem to get down under the 10kb limit without losing picture quality. Has anyone got any handy tips on reducing file size without compromising the picture? I'm using Photoshp 7, if that helps...

Many thanks! :D

You can get them bigger than the limit if you want, mines miles bigger. Tell you what send me the piccy i'll make it smaller so that it still looks groovy. My email address is on my profiley thingy. I'll upload it onto Imageshack and send you the link

Does that help in anyway?

Yes!

So, is that the key to having them bigger than the limit? To host them elsewhere?

Thanks for your help...even though I'm not a local :shock:

EDITED TO ADD: I went ahead and tried it anyway, and it worked! So thanks again for your help!
