Avatar quality

The avatar size is 60pixels square, quality limit 6.0 kb.
The least I can do for a decent looking avatar is 12 kb, yet I am seeing some quite sharp avatars around the site.
Does anyone know how to retain quality at that filesize, or can we increase the limit to 15kb per avatar?


Try .png file output. You can easily get your avatar to 3KB and maintain quality.

Thank you!

That looks much better!
