Photoshop Help!

Ok so I know there are some Photoshop geniuses out there, and I need some help.

How do you reduce the size of an image so that it meets the 11.7 KB requirement?

I can make some nice avatars, but they all are around 38 KB.

Help please!

file> save for web> and then you can lower it to 60%

- there a number of ways you can reduce the file size:
crop it, flatten it, reduce the resolution, reduce the image size.

are you outputting it to anything fancy?
he just wants an avatar...

save for web @60% is fine.

I went all the way down to 1% and it still wasn't enough.

It's stuck at 12 KB.

you need 2 resize it to 140 pixels tall and no more. THEN save to web at 60% it should be about 9kb well under the 11.7kb size limit.
