50KB is NOT Enough for a Profile Picture!

30 posts in this topic

I'm posting this because I can't add my own custom made icon which looks really good with the Angry Army, but sadly 50KB is not enough. I know I'm not only speaking for myself, other fellow members have the same problem. I'm not asking for a 1GB limit but maybe 200KB or 100KB would be much better!

Hmm, that is sad. It seems that most people have done fine with the limit, me included. Why exactly is your image that big?

Just change the image format and lower the image quality.That is what i did.

I sort of agree with all parties. It would be more convenient for a higher tolerance, but almost everyone managed it. But in the end, I think the convenience wins.

The reason it's so big is because I drew a most of it on my Note 2 and there is no way ( that i can find ) to lower the size of the Drawing's, I tried saving as a  Jpeg and using the lowest setting but it saves as a 70KB file :( .

Put it on your computer, open it with Photoshop or Paint.net (idk what you have). Lower the size and you should be fine

You can always adjust the size of it. Mines on 8bit 19KB. did it with paint.net

 

 

WOW paint.net never even crossed my mind when I was doing the Icon, thanks so much for the help. I'm still going to have the post up because it would be nice to have the option to upload better looking images on AJSA, and maybe just maybe Joe may see this post and could raise the file size for the icon :D

I don't see the problem. It would be nicer if it was bigger, but this isn't facebook and a lot of forums have a 50kb limit. We can make due

Ok nevermind I figured it out, you can easily resize your image in paint or any other photo editor. Although having a larger size than 50kb would be nice still.

I only find it an issue when I want to use a GIF as my icon, but I can't because it's next to impossible to find GIFs that are 50kb that someone isn't already using.

YouTube also has billions of dollars of infrastructure.

 

You cant enlarge these avatars any more, so might as well shrink is down to like 200x200 or something.

Yeah you have a point but I still would not mind seeing even 100kb instead of 50kb
