Default pic size to big for blackberry...help!

Please Login to Remove!

Well I've made my new theme in on plazmic and I used a pic that was originally a wallpaper for my computer and when I tried to transfer it the desktop mnger said it was too big of a pic (FILE SIZE). So how do I make the pic smaller so I can fit it onto my bb. Thanks!

You didn't say why file type it was, but JPGs can be make smaller in many programs. Maybe some more details could help, how big was it?

Any image editing software will do it

I have a pic that is the correct size (320 x 240) and 23kb, yet I get the message my image needs to be smaller than 60 kb from Plazmic.

Any suggestions?

What did you create the image in. Theme builder has been known to have some quirks with some images.
Also what format is it in?

Wirelessly posted (7130e: Mozilla/2.0 (compatible; MSIE 3.02; Windows CE; PPC; 240x320) BlackBerry8703e/4.1.0 Profile/MIDP-2.0 Configuration/CLDC-1.1 VendorID/104)

It is a JPEG I downloaded from a website and resized with MS digital imager.

Tried photoshop CS2 (9.0) and it still says the image is too big even though it is less than 60kb.

What might I be doing wrong?

It's a known theme builder issue.
Try saving as a gif instead. That's the only work around I've really seen

Saving the images as gifs did the trick! Thanks!
