As of right now, you cannot upload images as your profile pic if they are above 100kb. This is the only website I have ever used that limited it to such a small amount for profile images. And I look on the forums here and almost no one has a profile picture or it is laughably pixelated. I'd say bumping it up to at the very least, 1 MB would be a great addition, and more people can get images on their profiles that they want.

We might increase this a little when we move avatars off the forum. Although, that said, whatever you upload we'll probably resample down to a sensible size for showing next to your content anyway.

an 8k is between 11-90 MB for a singular image. The original photo that I'm using was ~800KB.

For a 68x68 pixel non-animated image you really do not need more than 100kb. Downsize whatever image you are using to 68x68 in an image editing program to reduce the file size on your end before you upload and you will be fine.

That's what I did and it looks really really low quality.

Are you using Windows scaling or something like that? that would enlarge images and make them look a bit rough.
