Hi,
I cannot seem to figure out :( how make the Avatar I want to use to get small enough! The file size is less than 40kb (23.5) but the width and height are more than the "100" maximum. Any help is appreciated.

Need a graphics editing program - e.g. Windows 10 Paint app can do it.

Thanks, but I still use Vista, other then an Avatar edit, it still works for me. That said I do have a iPad Pro for traveling but still learning how to use it!
