Personal Icon Size

01/15/05 2:51 AM GMT
I have attempted to upload a personal icon for the bigest part of the day. The directions call for an image of 60x60 and the file not be bigger than 5kb. I cannot seem to get an image that small. As close as I have gotten is an image of 16x16 with resoluttin of 25. The image was very out of fcus and when I tried to uploadit I received the same old message; teh file is to large. What am I missing??

Go back to your original image and save as a GIF. Then crop* to the 60x60. If still too big (over 5kbs), lessen the resolution or crop slightly smaller. For example, my icon is 60x60, 3.25 kbs.

*also use the 'image size' tool in PS or similar.

You can also right click on the file to check the file size. If it's any bigger than 5kb, don't waste time trying to upload it...

Thank you camerahound and Samatar. The GIF instead of the JPEG file made the difference
