Can't get photo small enough to upload
      #1578779 - 03/29/14 04:24 AM (71.218.131.22)

I have been trying to upload a new photo using "resize" in paint. Even if I reduce it to a spec, say 5x3 pixels, it is still around 32 KB. What am I doing wrong?

If you are talking about a profile photo, it might because you are trying to upload a photo in a format other than .gif, .jpg, or .png as required by the site. I recall the Paint program loves to keep things in .bmp (Bitmap) format.

No it's definitely in JPEG, but no matter how small I make it, it won't go below 32 KB.

What is the format? Maybe some of us photo geeks can help out.

Thanks for Pixlr tip. Now I have it the right size and format, 120x120, and 22 KB, but every time I try to change to the new photo, it just reverts back to old photo. It shows new photo file in the "browse" window, but when I hit submit, it reverts back to old photo. And yes I have selected the button next to the command.

Have it down to 115x115 and 8 KB, and it still won't load!

Had the same issue, the old photo kept re-appearing. As I recall I cleared the cached images in my browser and that did the trick... the new image appeared.

I was wondering about clearing the browser cache as well, but the description of where the problem occurs seems to be before final viewing. I suppose clearing the cache couldn't hurt though.

Cleared the cache in both Internet Explorer and Googlechrome and old picture still comes back.
