Avatar size is limited to only 6kb

Chilly is there anyway to increase the size limit? For now I can only add my less than 6kb NOS avatar 8)

Really not a big deal but was just wondering because I'm sure there are others that are scratching their heads and wondering why their Ugly MUG can't be loaded as an avatar :lol: :roll:

Large annoying avatars...

I personally don't like large annoying avatars...the size/shape restrictions are a positive in my mind. I've seen sites where the avatars can be like 300x300 and you end up with lots of big avatars, slow loading times and lots of scrolling due to all the white space between posts.

If this was put up as a Poll, I'd vote for leaving the avatars just as they are.

I'll see if it can be adjusted, but I'm with the others...small avatars are my preference.

For that matter, I'll look into restricting signatures as well...otherwise we'll have guys putting full size car pics in their signature and having them appear every time they post. It's a bandwidth and storage hog.

I agree on both counts, however 6kb seems very small. Maybe I'll have to shrink a few of the avatars. I wanted to add a dog drinking out of a toilet but it is somthing like 14.5kb :lol:

Signature is limited to 225 characters or maybe it was 255 characters?

Thanks!

Alright, I just went through the exercise and you're right...6kb is kind of tough.

My only avenue for shrinking them is to crop them as tight as possible, then shrink them down. Is there any other method for making the file size smaller...such as an image compressor?

Anyway, I can adjust the size but I want to wait for an answer on the compressor before opening it up...space costs money and wasting it on 'extras' like avatars isn't something I'd like to do.

i got a progragm

it will shrink Jpeg's to any file size i want. However pic quality diminishes as file size goes down, but sometimes not to bad till you get real small.

Software

Easy Graphics Converter 1.2 is the software you need. It's a free download. Someone on the site clued me in. Real helpful when posting pics on sites with limits on how large of a file you can post. Try google and I'll bet you find it.

Would also prefer larger/more memory on avatars, within reason, of course.
