I think it can be over 10kb in size as long as it's by a reasonable amount. Any avi I make into 100x100, it'll still be a just a lil bit over 10k. (My current one is 6kb, but only because it's b/w.)

You shouldn't have to LOOK for avis. Just find an image you like, and use ms paint, adobe photoshop, photo editor, or any programs. Different ones yield different results.

Anything over 10 000, by any ammount, is too large a file. It's not hard to get an avatar that's 100x100 and less than 10 000. I have one and it's fully coloured and detailed. Thank you for asking rather than just using one that is too large.

Thanks. I FINALY figured it out. Turns out I was using the wrong link from image shack. (Don't know where I got the idea that you're supposed to use the hotlink for forums for an avatar) But anyway it's working now. (even tho its really cheesy looking. and small)
By the way: Is it an ok size and all?
thanks.
Long live Suikoden!

Your avatar is too big, it's over 10 000 K. You can easily find this out by right clicking on it and going to "properties" that will tell you both the size of the file and the width/length.

I have an avatar that is the correct size (100 by 100 pixels) but the file size is too big and its black and white! Could someone help me make the filesize smaller or find a similar picture that fits?

there's no way to make that under the 10kb.the only way it's possible is by making it so small you can barly see it.

Is there any place for the people of this forum to choose from a selection of avvies? Like in some forums like this, they have an option to choose a premade one or upload one or get one from the site that the forum is from. I made a couple of Suikoden 2 icons and would more then happily make more to submit for this place.

There. It's 8kb now. How did I do it?

MAGIC.



(Actually, I just popped it into Photoshop and hit "save for web." Come on, people.)

Thanks! I don't have photoshop, so I can't really edit pictures.

Zombee, could you please remove the image in your post and add a link to it instead? Posting images is against the rules.

I think this is within the new avatar size rules, but I want to make absolutely sure, since it says size is 'unavailable' in Properties...
