getting a picture to 10KB

I have read the posts and the sticky in the classifides, but I cant figure out how to get a picture small enough to be my avatar. I have gotten them to 14KB but no smaller. I know that this is probably a dumb question but I am not to good at this stuff yet. So sorry if it is. Thanks

yeah it takes some work. actually i cant remember how i finally got mine that small. i think i got it as small as a could then cropped it. i might have also loaded the small pic after it was cropped onto photobucket and copied and pasted it back onto my computer, because i think that makes it smaller also. all i remember was that it took forever to get it right...

It needs to be in JPG or similar format--no way a BIT would work. Use an imagimage resizer software program. In it are setting so make the pics less dense, and thus not use as much memory.
