Can you up the size to 96x96? Display pictures/avatars are, most of the time, 96x96 so can you raise it from 80x80 to that? I know it can be done cause I did it in PHPBB2... like... June last year

Yeah i support it.

I wanted to use a new avatar but it was bigger then 80x80 and it was 2kb bigger (at 26.4kb).
So maybe up the limit to:

96x96 (most avatars found on the internet are that big).
30kb (uploadsize).

Could you increase the file size as well please? It's impossible to make an image of that size without making it very low quality, something like 50 kb would be good.

Every avatar I have ever made has been under 20KB, so I don't see why anyone else should have an issue? And thats at fully quality too...

Even my avatar...

is only 4.04KB! Even as a 100% JPEG its 8.62KB... So 20KB is very plenty.

Hmm, maybe it's Photoshop, which is what I normally use, seems if you save them in Paint they are that size but Photoshop makes them much bigger even if saved at quality 0 (Jpeg of course) - ended up using a PNG in PS as that is smaller than a Jpeg but still 20 kb.

Damn you Andy for choosing a size that's 0.5 kb below my avatar in PNG-24!

happy dude: As a suggestion, omit it from your portfolio.

For those still having problems fitting PNG files, try pngcrush to optimise it for size even more.
