    not sure what type of software you have, but go to your picture editing software and shrink it down...mine has a "resize" feature. I did that a few times until it was accepted by the site.

    good luck. Sorry for the non-technical description, but's all I know!

    75 x 75 pixels

    also, check if the image is not over 4kb

    post the image here and me (or anyone) can resize and drop the kb on it

    You can re-size pictures on MS Paint - which comes free with Windows! Just cut it to 75 X 75 as Dave said.

    well, i can program computers and write insanely complicated music but i cannot use MS Paint...

    Would someone be so kind as to resize this for me ?

    I would appreciate it.
