Resize it.

 

Make it 79 by 99.

 

Though mine is 100 x 96, so yours should work. It's probably too big of a file. I think the max is 5k.

Cool. How'd you get it down to that?

lol :'o

 

Photoshop... saved it as a jpg at 65% quality. Below 65% it starts to look a bit weird. Fortunately it brought down the file size to like 4k, so it was perfect.

 

There's also saving as a gif with under 32 colours that usually works well for tiny avatars and will reduce the file size as well.

 

If you don't have photoshop, I'm sure there are some freeware programs out there that will save image files down to compressed jpg and GIF formats.
