How do you make it so small! I have an image I want thats only 95 by 76 pixels and only 7.08 KB. The origional is only 93KB(640 by 480). I have no clue how to make it any smaller unless you can't even tell what the picture is because the photo is so small. Can you please make the size(byte wise) just a bit bigger for us people that aren't good at Photoshop?

I'm not that good at Photoshop to be able to describe it but if you'll send me the photo I'll scale it down for you.

One of the key things to keep in mind when trying to keep clarity of the photo is to keep the photo uncluttered. If you have a photo that has a bunch of "stuff" in it, it will not scale that small very well at all. Keep it simple, and it will work.

Mine is set to 100x100. Different sites have different max sites - so it just scales it down if it needs to be smaller. I use Photoshop. Irfanview is a free image editor you can download. Look it up on Google. It works very nicely.

I am just trying to upload this pic of maXair. It doesn't seem like it would be that hard. I use photoshop too.
