In the avitar upload area, it says that you image has to be either less that 85X85 Pixels or 9KB. My potential avitar is only 4 KB but it still says its to large. Whats wrong?

Thumbs up

It means that the pixel dimensions are too large, even though your file size is under half of the max limit.

After all, it has to do with coloring, pixels/inch, image type, etc. GIFs have smaller file sizes--and less colors to choose from (256)--than JPEGs. High pixel/inch counts also bump up file size. And of course, whether the image is black or white. A black and white image will take up less file space than a full-color image.

Try saving your potential avi as a GIF and see how you like it. If you feel the colors match well enough, then save it and make the pixel dimensions 85x85 or smaller.
