How do I shrink my profile photo to fit the profile .49MB limit


Recommended Posts

I'm not the savviest trooper when it comes to image processing.  I've got a number of photos that I want to use for background and profile shots, but they're too big to fit the storage/space limit for the picture.  


I've got a mac and a pc, so any guidance on how to shrink a profile pic to acceptable upload size would be appreciated!

Here is how you can resize the file size on Mac Computers.


1) Open the picture in Preview

2) Select File on top bar

3) Select Export...

4) Move Quality Slider until file size is appropriate

5) Then Save!


I hope this helps. :)

I personally use Adobe Photoshop (paid) to resize my images. IrfanView is a free image viewing and basic editing software that can also rescale. There are also many websites that offer in-browser image editing and resizing; you just upload your photo, make the adjustments, and download the finished product.
