    You can obtion a ping file within file specs by:
    in adobe photoshop when you're ready to save your picture. Select "save for web" on the right select "PNG-8" then save. (Just incase you didnt' know how... Saving it normally as a PNG file, or as the larger PNG file will be too big. This size allows for plenty of quality.

    no one said that...

    *edit*

    He's just saying that for most people who make their avatars to PNG files, with photo shop, or any other program like it should make it smaller cause the KB's of the photo get to big.

    but I think you can make PNG files smaller with paint as well.

    what is the benefit of PNG avatars over jpegs?

    nepenthes_ak's new avatar is nice and crisp and clear..looks great!
    but its still 28K in size..pretty big for an image that small.

    so what is the deal with PNGs supposed to be?
    im confused..

    scottychaos- You're correct. It's too big! lol I told him to turn it down while we were chatting last night. But he had bed and school- I'm sure he'll get it turned down today. those 2 extra KBs are making me angry!!! I think the main benifit is clairity, but they do tend to have larger file sizes. That's why I gave how to turn that down using adobe. But you can also make animations with it... I think the main benifit is some online file storing sites use that format. So now you can link those to here.

    Also:
    Short for Portable Network Graphics, and pronounced ping, a new bit-mapped graphics format similar to GIF. In fact, PNG was approved as a standard by the World Wide Web consortium to replace GIF because GIF uses a patented data compression algorithm called LZW. In contrast, PNG is completely patent- and license-free. The most recent versions of Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer now support PNG.
