RE: Avatar max image size too small
Yeah, I posted that as a GIF since that's a format that does well with "computer generated stuff".

For photos, I would use jpg. I just grabbed a photo of my dog, resized it to avatar size, and output it as jpeg, and with default settings it it came out as 2782 bytes.

With heavy jpeg compression I can get it under a kilobyte, though the compression artifacts really show. At a compression that yields about 1.5K, I can see the difference from the original if I look closely.

I just grabbed another picture of a person, cropped it to his face. scaled it to avatar size, sharpened, and the default jpeg output is 2896 bytes. If I compress it to about 1900 bytes, I start seeing the difference if I look for it.

Grabbed a calculator shot, resized, sharpened, output size with defaults is 2975 bytes.

So I'm not seeing any 10KB limit issues yet.
