    Get a free copy of the Gimp and either resize the dimensions of the image or use a higher compression to get the file size down to the 80k limit as dorward linked to (or both).

    Ways of reducing the size of an image file:

    • Resize the image.
    • Crop the image.
    • Decrease the quality of the image (if you're using a lossy format such as .jpg).
    • Switch to a lossy format (such as .jpg), especially if the image is photo-like (i.e. no hard egdes).
    • Lower the number of colours saved. This is particularly useful for lossless formats such as .png.
    • Lower the number of colours used. This is particularly useful for lossless formats such as .png.

    There is an 80k limit - and you can't (at least, it shouldn't be possible) work around it.
