Free programme to reduce photo quality

  Trikie 22:50 11 Jan 2008

I want to reduce the quality of some photos but not the size. I've got PIXresizer but it reduces the dimensions as well.

Is there something else that will do what I want?

Converting them to jpeg can in some cases reduce the quality, I think some converters allow various degrees of jpeg quality, in percentages. I have seen that before, but can't remember where.

I've downloaded Image Resizer from Microsoft PowerToys. It didn't ask where I wanted to put it and it doesn't appear on any list or menu.

How can I find it?

The Power Toys image resize option is in the right click options.
Right click on the image and the resize option is there. You can highlight a group of pictures and do them all at once.

might be missing something here but why on earth would you want to reduce the quality of a photograph? Thought most people always wanted to increase the quality of an image.
