    http://www.picresize.com/

    Loads of sites like that which will resize it.

    make it under 150x150 pixels and 15kb limit is not a problem

    Awesome pic, but Tony you're not doing yourself many favours posting up tips on preventing the gag reflex and then a picture of a guy touching his toes - Ak

    You should be able to save it much smaller than that in photoshop. Try saving it as a jpeg with a much lower compression rate. It should give you this option on the save screen. Also make sure the actual physical size of the image isn't bigger than it needs to be. Photoshop is industry standard software there is very little you can't do with it!

    In photoshop i saved as jpeg at the lowest quality possible and it was still do big, maybe im doing summin wrong as im not a PS genius just yet.
