Would somebody please recommend a piece of software that lets u compress JPEGs.

I have pics taken on my digi cam that r as much as 1mb in size (JPEG format) and want 2 reduce these as much as possible.

Quality isnt really much of an issue.

Thanks.

You can't compress jpeg much further as they are already in a compressed format.

Use a program like irfanview click here to reduce the quality and therefore the size.

yes i agree with jester. The more you compress the more lossy the quality, although with photoshop there is an option where it says how high do you want the quality from highest to lowest.

JPEG optimiser click here is very good for the big shrink on pics. Particularly handy for sending jpegs to friends on pay as you go.
