Comment (by nardberjean):

 I agree their is room for improvment.

 Even with gimp I had a too eavy png. I found two usefull linux command
 which can further compress png :

 pngquant 64 photo_pidgin_96x96.png
 pngnq photo_xmpp_64x64.png

 Replying to [comment:28 Athan]:
 > Jabber only PNG is allowed, minimum 32x32, max 96x96, and must be at
 most 8191 bytes).  If the dialogue had stated "For this protocol images
 should be between 32x32 and 96x96 pixels and no more than 8191 bytes, in
 one of the following formats: png" I'd not have wasted anywhere near as
 much time.
 > Auto-conversion that does actually work would be a bonus.
