Need help resizing/compressing a picture.

Hey guys I am trying to make a picture my avatar and cant seem to get it within the requirements of

"The maximum size of your custom image is 100 by 100 pixels or 9.8 KB (whichever is smaller)."

This is the picture I want to use.

http://www.bikestyletours.com/albums...-Paris/acy.jpg

Cropped similar to this to take out the deadspace (obviously without the hosting logo on the bottom).



I try to resize it and crop it and the smallest I can get it is roughly 14kb. In order for me to get it to 9.8 it is like 40 x 40 pixels. Thanks for the help!

Does turbocivic.com own the rights to that pic or are they just hosting it?

If it's a copyright mark (which it doesn't appear to be...but it's still good to be mindful of) then I wouldn't take it. It looks to just be a "hosted by" mark, though.

Just something to keep in mind...
