    I'll fire up the desktop & post something back in about 30min or less.
    You attached a .png file eek. Do you have one in a jpeg?
    Anyways here is a quick jpg conversion, it's getting a bit late...see if this works for now..
    It may still be to big, I'm tired.

    A lot of detail gets lost in reducing the image to less than 2000 bytes.
    It would be better to find a photo that has a more contrasting back ground, less white.
    I then can try adding in additional contrast & sharpening.
    The clearer high quality 5+ mega pixel camera image in a Jpeg, is the best way to start.

    Your avatar's file size is too large. Please upload an avatar no bigger than 2 KB.

    I have looked at a lot of other members' avatars are most are over the 2kb limit. why not for me? Like yours is 3.39k.

    This is not easy, another half hour reducing sharpening & was still too big.
    This one should work at 1993 kb.

    All I can think of is my avatar was uploaded well before the Forum was switched to XenForo software.

    You're welcome.
    Doesn't look too bad considering to get to 1993 kb required reducing & then drop it back further, to 30% of small original quality.
