Can't submit an avatar image.

The profile editor will not allow me to use my avatar image. It says, "
Your avatar's file size is too large. Please upload an avatar no bigger than 50 KB." But my image fits all of the requirements. My image is 200px X 200px X 8bit PNG 20.8KB. I attached the image I'm having trouble with.

I had this same trouble in the FreeNAS forum. I attached my image to a post at their request and they fixed the problem. I don't know what they did to work around the problem.

I don't know why you couldn't use the picture, but I have set it for you now.
Seriously! I've seen such errors before, don't remember where, but my solution was to use a different file format (png, gif, jpg, ...).
It's the galaxies! Perhaps one too many? ;)
I am a part time amateur astronomer. I can identify the image as a photo of the Rho Ophiuchi Nebula. Compared to our galaxy, the Milky Way, the nebula is a tiny part. Compared to our solar system, Sol, it is tremendously large. Fun facts.

I love this avatar. It takes me back to a time when I was more active in astronomy. Maybe I'll get back to it after I retire.
