    Hello,
    I'm on an iPhone 4s, how are you guys doing your avatars?
    I've looked for photo editing tools for iPhone, but nothing goes
    As small as 90x90, the smallest I can get is 320 pixels?

    I'd like to create an avatar, but keeps telling me FILE TO LARGE,
    Please reduce to 90x90pixels or less? Or under a certain MB?

    I've tried several editing apps, with no avail?

    Any help?

    Thanks for your time!

    ( or is this something I need to do on my laptop? )

    You may need to use a PC program. I just added an avatar for the first time this morning too, and I went through everything you did. I couldn't even get Photoshop to make an image small enough to fit 6KB until I used "save for web" and fine-tuned the format and palette.

    Photoshop for Mac supports this feature.

    I believe I edited mine down to size for this forum with the basic (free) tools on imgur's site.
