files too big

I would like to post a picture of Gizmo as my avatar. I can't seem to get a file that is under 6KB even though PHotoshop tells me the files are extremely minute.
Is there someone who can clean up a file for me so that I may post Gizmo's face instead of this screaming kitty?
Thanks very much.

What I usually do is upload it to the gallery or a host then I just copy the link, go to profile and link to off-site avatar and it works. Also I make the avatar 120 x 120, here are the rules by the way:

I've tried that and had rather poor results with the 'avatar photo' that I specifically sized to be very, very small.
Maybe I'll try with a larger file and see what happens.

thanks for the tip.

Didn't work. Sorry, this is ridiculous...I was able to use this same photo on every other cat forum I tried posting on.

Did you resize it to 120 x 120? If you can't resize it then post the photo here. Maybe just post it and I'll test it out for you.

gizmo avatar



Every time I try to upload it I get a bug. Here's the photo; I've used it before. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks very much.

This is a small enough file to upload:

I tried it and it works. Maybe your copying the link w/ the image tags, you just have to copy the URL which is https://www.catforum.com/photos/data/500/betterface.jpg into the Link to off-site Avatar.
