Getting an image down to 10 kilobytes for use as an avatar is darned tricky. I learned that converting a .jpeg to a .gif (not the replaying kind, just an image) helps shrink it - but 10 kbs??? I feel like Gary Sinise in Apollo 13 trying to get them back to earth on 3 amps.

It only needs to be 10kb if you upload the avatar to ER because the site has restricted space... if you link to an offsite URL, it can be 100 or 200 kb or whatever.

Technically, gifs are not supposed to be used as avatars on ER.

That simply stabs the very core of my fragile heart. They don't hurt anybody...

Not even if they depict the Official Pitcher of Expecting Rain?
