Option 1: (recommended)
Step #1, install Windows on your Mac
Step #2, choose from a plethora of programs that will allow photo editing/resizing

Option 2: (photoshop)
You say you have photoshop...just save it as a lower-quality file such that when you view file properties for the jpg it is <19kb. Then SDN should handle the resizing. But I don't see why resizing it to 100x100 in photoshop wouldn't work.

i dont really get why resizing it in photoshop didnt work, either. i belong to another board and it is the same thing, but usually photobucket links will work.

i even tried shrinking it to 80x100 and still no luck.

i think im just going to donate. :D
