Well, Beachglass did it for me last time (in the Testing thread), but no one ever explained how to compress the image or what have you. In Photoshop, I've just been trying to lower the resolution and make the dimensions smaller, to no avail.

Could someone tell me how to do this? Beachglass mentioned a "resizing avatars" tutorial; I think that would be very helpful.

Randall, if this doesn't get resolved by tomorrow I'll go back to the old avatar... I don't want this too big one clogging anything up for too long!

Lowering the resolution should have helped, as should making the dimensions smaller--I'm not sure why it didn't.

I'll resize it for you in a couple of hours when I get to work and can get at my graphics tools.  (Which, I know, doesn't help you learn how to do it yourself, but at least you'll have an avatar that's within guidelines.)  I don't know Photoshop very well, so I'm not sure what to tell you there.

Incidentally, it doesn't look fuzzy to me at all...
