a question about avatars...

I have cropped a picture, and shrunken it to the appropriate size, but it seems that no matter HOW i save it, i can't get the file size under 6k. The avatars I have, Padunk did for me (thanks again!). But I would like to be able to do it myself... any suggestions?

MS Paint does an awesome job at saving jpegs. Just open it up in paint and "save as" -- make it a different file name and see how it works. If that doesn't work for me, I use Adobe ImageReady CS to keep making the file size smaller.

I really have no problems resizing another avatar if you're having troubles.

I can't save a decent quality JPEG under 6K with PhotoShop (surprisingly). I used ArcSoft PhotoStudio to shrink my avatar and it worked well.

Thanks for the tips...I ended up giving up and having Padunk do it for me (again! THANK YOU! ) I don't know how i'll figure out to do it myself, i tried and tried. I'm sure maybe one day
