I'm using a paperdoll thingie I copy/pasted into my hitherto unused paint program to design an outfit for my sci-fi setting. I want to put it up in the Fantasy subforum to get opinions, but I know there is a limit to how big an image we're allowed to post here. And I don't know the first thing about managing image size.

Can someone give me some advice?

Yes, AW's bandwidth is not without limits, so our images have size limits instead. Here's AW Admin's post on it: https://absolutewrite.com/forums/showthread.php?304595-FAQ-Image-Size-Guidelines

How big is 400 by 400, you ask? This big.

What, your image is not square? Keep it to about the same area, perhaps like this:
