I turned off support for external linking and uploading custom avatars as i've seen some horrors on other boards ... but for you Bicephale i will make an exception. I'll turn it back on for a day or two.

Maximum 80x80 Minimum 20x20

My avatar is exactly the maximum size permited. Is there a easy way to compress the file or could you just permit a few bit bigger a file?

Francois any file that is 80x80 pixels should be well under the permitted file size. If you send it to me i can compress it. Are you talking about file size or pixel width?

@brokenman:

Very nice to you to give me the offer. Finally, as you can see I made it. I was able to reduce the dimension of the picture and to reduce its size using gimp. Loading the picture and saving it to another format, will trigger export file and access to some features to reduce the size of the file.
