Photoshop Contest Forum Index - New Users - making file size small? - Reply to topic

Post Tue Apr 26, 2005 9:44 pm   Reply with quote         


I can't seem to get around making my avitar picture small enough to fit under 6k

I want it to be 70*70 but it is stuck at 7.5 kb even when i save it at lowest quality.

I finally got it under 6 kb after i made the file size 60 * 60 desaturated the picture and saved it at 0 lowest quality.


how are people saving their pictures to make them work for their avatar?

You might also try playing around with GIF, if you're using JPEG. Smile

Why would anyone want to save a still image as a gif? I always thought they were bulkier than jpeg...

DeAR KeiserSosay,

aS TO your Avatar: since you asked, I do NOT like it. I'm not sure what the heck is going on there?! Shocked

This does NOT mean I do not like YOU. You are fine. I just don't like your avatar and since you asked I have responded.

I hope you have a great summer! Very Happy
