Avatar problems

Postby NickH » Sun Apr 14, 2013 5:09 pm

Hi Admin!

I'm tried to upload an avatar to the forum but it is impossible.
The forum sets a hard limit of 80x80 pixels and 6kb for the file size.
Due to the increase in hard disc sizes the smallest possible file on my Mac (several years old) is 20kb, it is therefore impossible for me to upload an avatar.

Can someone offer a solution please?

If you email it to me, I'll see if I can reduce the file size for you. I have a couple different graphics programs available.

Thanks for the offer javelin98 but I'm afraid it won't help.

I've tried reducing the size of the file contents but as soon as I save it to my hard drive it reverts to 20kb :(

Update: I wondered if the minimum file size might be related to the disk size (minimum segment or whatnot) so I dug out an old 64MB memory stick.
Turns out the minimum file size was still 10kb :x

You could get a decent computer, something like Windows :wink: Tried your Windows VM or iPad? Then upload from there.

Huh... not sure what to tell you, then. Maybe one of the mods can chime in on that. Sorry!
