Hey i'm not so good with images - i was wondering if someone could tell me how i can get my file smaller, as in less KB without changing the size. i know there's supposedly some kind of compression thingies you can do but i don't know how to do this. I'm trying to put a pic in but can't get the file small enough. thanks.

Maybe if you could tell us what program(s) you have available?

Otherwise, if you're familiar jpg and/or gif compression...photographs are almost always better as jpg's. When you export a jpg, you can set a quality level as a percentage. For an avatar you should be able to get away with a fairly low quality rate, such as 50 or 60 percent.
