Maximum size is 80x80 or 8KB - and yet some of you have larger images that look like they take up more than 8KB of space.

How?

Team members get larger avatars. I guess, in some cases it's former team members.

Your avatar is only 64x64. If you went for a jpg with a little more compression, you'd probably be able to use the whole 80x80 at least.

I had to fiddle for minutes in Photoshop to get it below 8KB. That said, I saved it as something like 90x90. I guess something went wrong when uploading. Oh well, no big deal. Donít want to crash the site with a massive 10+ kb image

I think it reduces the dimensions of the image, if it violates the size limit. Maybe photoshop did not save it correctly? In general, png was also not working very well for my avatar, hence I went for jpeg.

PS: This is something that paint does well enough, so no need for photoshop

Forgot to tick the checkbox. As you donated, you can get a larger avatar.

I'm just "uping" a random thread because I'm tired of seing the "extremely displeased with Eye moderation blablablabla" bullshit one in my feed.


So… is my avatar too fat?
Yes, he is.

You could try an avatar similar to the one of @Cacheperl


On second thought, maybe it is not a good idea. Quick scrolling through a page might get me the two of you confused.

Edit
This one is bettter

I think that may have something to do with Summerfart being more smelly.
