    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ I haven't built a theme in awhile. Have you tried a different background to see if it might be something with that particular image?

    shanee,

    I'm willing to bet that the image is a 27Kbyte Jpeg. When PTB accepts jpeg files for any image it converts it to PNG. The conversion it uses really bloats the size, depending on a lot of factors. You can do one of two things but they both need a pretty good photo editor to accomplish.

    First try to save it as a GIF file and use that. If you have Photoshop, Use the save to web option on the File menu to save it and convert it to PNG-8 format and use the custom button to limit the output file size. I use 56K and everyone I have done works fine.

    Hope this helps
    Rcbjr.
