zip files what is wrong

Can anyone explain zip files to me please. I am running XP Home and when I click on make a compress zip file I then drag my photos into it which I wish to email but the folder is still the same size as my photos were originally which prevents me from emailing them via my usual server with a 2MB limit. What am I doing wrong?

photo files are oftten saved as .jpg or .jpeg

Jpegs are already compressed to a high degree and your zip program is therefore unable to compress them further.
