Itty bitty avatars

Post by Nicholas » Fri Jun 05, 2020 7:40 pm

Having trouble finding an avatar that 54KB or smaller. How about raising that number?

Greetings Nicholas,

If you don't know how to scale images on your computer, I'm happy to do it for you.

I just use good old MS Paint.

Good to have a techie around. See how much of this you can keep - with Buddha in center. A famous Roerich painting.

Titled Buddha the Winner - a bigger, clearer version, I think.

Greetings Nicholas,

The image height was 189 pixels, and the allowable max is 200, so I didn't need to scale the image, or crop anything from the top or bottom... so instead I just cropped from the left and right and tried to keep the Buddha central.

I downloaded it, but when I chose it for avatar was told "The avatar’s filesize must be between 0 and 54 KiB."

Just forget about it, I have to leave this machine now anyway.
