how did everyone find an image to fit the requirements. Every pic that I have found, I have edited it with Photoshop and made it 80 x 80 and it is always larger than 6 k. Do I get a smaller size because I am new around here? Whats the deal???

We dont get higher image size if we old here, i usualy save it as jpg, and the image file drop from 20k to 5k, i like jpg. biggrin if the image size is big, i export the image to paint and rescale it under 80x80 and save it as jpeg.

If your in photoshop, put save it as .jpeg and turn your quality down. You really won't notice, but the k size will drop considerably. There should be a little counter letting you know the current size. Post back if you have any problems.

Photoshop likes to save all sorts of random crud into your image as well (thumbnails and text descriptions and things). Make sure you turn all those off and you should easily get under 6KB.
