    I did a search and couldn't find an answer. How do you get an image small enough to fit the size restrictions for Talkbass avatars ? I've done everything i know and can't get it small enough. I have photoshop, i assume it can be done with that ? Help !

    use the resize function on your image editor. Instead of selecting a physical inch/mm size, use pixels and set the size accordingly.

    I think i tried that, i brought the pixel size down to 80 x 80 (the limit) but the file size is still too big. any thoughts ?

    I'm usually able to use Microsoft Paint to reduce mine (standard with any Windows operating system I've had). You can usually bring up the pitcture file...go to Image, to Stretch/Sklew and enter 40% (or so). I then resave it to another file. This usually gets tit down low enough....at least for me. Good luck!!
