Can't change my Icon Quote | Reply

Every time I try to change my Icon it states the file is too large, but it's no larger than my current Icon and No larger than some of the other icons of other users. I don't understand what I need to do to get it to work. If I try to get it under 10 kb it's too small to see.

Attached are the two photos. dzcomphoto.jpg is my current icon and Icon.jpg is the one I'm trying to use. On my computer they are the same file size, but when I up load them one is 1.43 kB and the other is 10.6 kb. What am I doing wrong?

Two words - Adobe Photoshop. Use the "Save for web" option. On the low quality setting, it took that avatar down to 690 bytes Shocked
