Trouble getting hermies as avatar?

Post by Crabby7Crabber » Sat Jan 18, 2020 11:13 pm

Hi guys! So, I wanted to put a picture of my George Washington as my avatar, but no matter how much I cropped the picture, it would say that it was more than 10 KB, and that I couldn't use it. :x Did anyone have this problem? Do them know how to fix it? Thanks!

Try using this free photo compression webpage:
http://jpeg-optimizer.com

Where it says "compression level", I had to choose 20 to get my very large photo to become under 10 kb. You might have to play around with that number depending on your file size to get it under the 10 kb requirement. Let me know how you make out! ImageImage

That's great! Image
Do you have a non compressed version of your avatar pic? The details are a bit too blurry when I try to blow it up. Image

I do, but I don't have Tapatalk. I need to get it soon! Thank you for the help! I also need a better pic of George Washington... I'm waiting until he comes up, though. Thank you for the help, CrabbyLover77!!!

(Btw, he's a tan with blue-ish legs and no purple claw, if I remember correctly. I found him at a pet store amazingly; such beautiful colors he has!)
