Hi all.

All avatars need to be 10K in size or lower. Dimensions remain 128x128 max. If you are able to help us by reducing your own avatars in size (file size, not dimensions), please do so and post them in the avatars thread (http://www.tombraiderforums.com/showthread.php?t=71596) so we can replace larger avatars quickly and efficiently.

Thank you in advance to all those who help make this job easier for us.

Aww..... Well, thanks for the info :wve:

If I reduce mine in size, it'll destroy the image. Could I just post a totally different one (under 10K in size) in the avatar thread?

That's fine A.

Hmmm i will change mine, but i don't think i can get this animated one any smaller. It's about 12k.
It's boring me now anyway.

Thats fine with me :)

Can I ask why its been reduced?

To reduce bandwidth consumption.

Yours is currently 10779k. If you reduce it a little, I'm sure it won't look that bad.

EDIT: nevermind, I was looking at the bytes. :p

i was gonna change tomorrow anyway, so this is the perfect time for me :)

Thorir
23-08-06, 22:42
Goodie, mine is under that. :)
Is this why I can see some people´s avatar, and my own, but not others?

Edit: No, it seems not.

Pipolinne
23-08-06, 22:43
I'll ask Amlai to reduce mine properly,or I'll just make a mess,lol!

Anyway, I'll try and see if one of my old avvies could fit.

Thorir. You could prolly half your file size and maintain quality. ;)

Thanks for telling us, tlr. :wve:

How do I tell how many kb my pictures are?

tlr online
23-08-06, 22:50
Right mouse click on your avatar. The file size will be listed under properties.

Yours is 3.8K, which is fine.

StarCroft:AOD
23-08-06, 22:51
Thorir, your avatar is 7 KB.:confused:

Thorir
23-08-06, 22:51
Thorir. You could prolly half your file size and maintain quality. ;)

I´ll see what I can do, maybe time to change avatar again now. I´ve had this for over a month. ;)

Kyle; right click on the pictures and select properties. You can see how big the file is that way. :)

Hmm Mine is under that hehe so im ok with it :D

Thorir
23-08-06, 22:53
Thorir, your avatar is 7 KB.:confused:

Yeah, under 8 KB, at least.
Maybe because of the colours. It´s almost only red, black and white. :)

StarCroft:AOD
23-08-06, 22:53
Ok, so I need to re-upload my avatar? mine is 11 KB.:p

Yeah. If you could get it down to 5K, which should not be too hard, that would be cool.

Hmm i hate avatars that small i am part of another forum that only allows avatars to be 70x70 and beleive me it is hard to find a good looking pic that still looks nice that small! Thank goodness that the actual size is still the same :)

Pipolinne
23-08-06, 23:31
All has its advantages: as Kamrusepas put it, a little bit more of that image I rarely use :whi: was revealed to the public :D!

But I'll bug Amlai into make another one!:D

Could someone be so kind and enlighten me?
And in case I do have to reduce the KB I will need some help, please, since I do not know how to do this.

Thanks :wve:

Thank you so much :hug: .

Btw. how do I "convert" from bytes to KB? StarCroft:AOD tells me that my 12058 bytes equal 11.78 KB. I'm afraid, I do not understand. I would have thought it to be 12.058 KB :o .

12058 / 1024 = 11.77.

Too large it seems...dont think there is a way to make any kind of decent image given the dimension limitations that fits the required size limit.

24-08-06, 16:59
If you open up my pictures and find the file of your current avatar, right click it and go on Properties, then look at the size of it and if it is less that 10kb you will have to change it I think ;)
