I reduced a photo to 30X30 and it is still 38KB. This is too big. I saved it as a jpeg. How is it possible to have it 150x150 and yet be under 7KB?

It's going to need a lot of compression. If you still have a problem, post a link of the picture or upload it to here and I'll recompress it for you.

I've been trying to put a picture of Rico and I as my avatar and for some reason it's just not working...grr. PIxel size is below 150 for both dimensions, but it says the KiB is too high? It's supposed to be below 6, and mine is 6.8 something? Shrinking the picture isn't changing the KiB size. hm. I've never had such a problem trying to make an avatar lol. This is the picture I'm trying to avatar-ize
