Where did ya find that quote Scotty? That size isn't right ... it would be around 1.6 GB.

It's awful big even if the author meant bytes instead of kilobytes... it would still be over 1.6 MB ... if the author meant kilobits and assuming an 8 bit byte it's just over 200kb ...still unreasonable IMHO ... a single avatar could take 3 minutes to load for a dial up user


I would try to keep an avatar to 30 kilobytes or less (30720 bytes).

Gifworks.Com has a great freebie online tool for optimizing .gif avatars.

you're not thinking of changing your avatar are you? I like the one you have.
