Quick (sort of) method for making a file size small enough to use as an avatar, for Windows users:
1)Put the picture on a page (of any kind) and have the page visible on your monitor screen.
2)Press the "PrtScrn" key on your keyboard.
3)Open MS Paint (it's in "accessories" of all Windows computers.)
4)"Paste". The screenshot will now be pasted in its entirety.
5)"Select" just the picture and "cut".
6)Open a "new" Paint page. (When you are asked if you want to save the existing one, just say "discard").
7)"Paste" what you have cut in the new page.
8)Adjust the size to 90 X 90 pixels or less, if necessary, using "Stretch and Skew". The picture will most likely now be smaller in file size than the 6000b maximum.
9)"Save As" (select a place on your computer to store the picture, and select "jpeg" as the file type).
10)Go to your profile in the Sweet Maria's forum User Control Panel and upload the picture.
