Reducing Size

I need some help reducing this picture:

to under 50kb.

Can anyone help, or give me some tips?

Your best bet is to either save it as a JPG or reduce the number of colours using an image editing application like The Gimp, Photoshop or Paint Shop Pro.

Edit: I see you have transparency ... so reduced color PNG(~24kb) would be best... (heh, or the GIF Luffeh posted while I was distracted...)

And the darkness can come quick. The danger's in the anger and the hanging on to it.

If you want to keep it transparent, save it as .gif and reduce the amount of colours until it's under 50kb's.

EDIT: ... Didn't notice that NightWish had edited his post. He explained the same thing already. x|
Go me.

By the way, Photoshop wouldn't let me change the amount of colours when saving the picture as a png. The only option I get is "Interlaced: Interlaced / None". Some reason for this?

You need to save it as PNG 8 to change the number of colours, not PNG 24. ^^

Also, something that might be worth mentioning in this thread, in case anyone didn't know already:

When you got to "Save For Web" in PS, there's an arrow next to the drop down list of presets; if you click it you have an option to optimise the image to a specific size, either using format you have selected or by letting it choose the best quality it can with GIF or JPEG.
