Not a bug, but a forum issue!

Postby Aviven » Thu Jan 04, 2018 11:11 pm

Avatars on this forum can only be 6Kb and under.
HOW can i fit the allowed 90x90px image into 6Kb if a simple cartoony avatar in 42x42px in JPG format is 13+Kb when saved at lowest image quality!
Am i supposed to have a master's degree in image compression to be able to have an avatar on this forum?

Please turn that 6 to a 60 and we're good

Thanks.

you can use image compression websites that will get the job done. google tiny images or tinypng or something like that.

Uh, well thanks, still... we shouldn't need to use those sites. 6Kb is nothing they could spare a few more.

42x42x3=5292 bytes without any compression applied, not even lossless one. 90x90x3=24300 bytes, which turned into below 3k for my avatar and I'm not even sure I needed to set jpg quality below 80 for that...
