I want to add an avatar on a forum i use but it keeps saying its too big, i reduce the size using photoshop to less than the 75 x 75 pixels they say it should be but when i go to properties of the photo, the file size is still big and it wont upload - however small I make the picture it makes no difference.
I have photoshop, ADC or MGI photosuite I could use but i dont know how to change the file size.
It cant be over 10kb to be accepted. Help! please can someone give me an 'idiot's guide of what to do?!'
When you do the "save as" for a jpg, there will be an options button - click it, and you will see several parameters - one of which adjusts the amount of compression. The more compression, the smaller the file size - experiment until you get it correct.
This is probably the quickest and easiest of the lot. There are a whole load of facilities on this Microsoft site, including an image resizer. A simple right click and you will be offered a choice of sizes. click here
