    Yup, VSO seems pretty damned good. It even works with RAW files from my Nikon.

    Downloaded it, tried it, don't like it.
    1. more clicks to operate
    2. 800 x 600 file size was bigger &
    3. it stole verticle strips out of the picture. ( try flicking between the compressed images.)

    If you find a post of mine that is missing a pic that you'd like to see, let me know & I'll see if I can find a copy.

    More clicks compared to what? I generally use four clicks: (1) right-click on the photo(s)>(2) vso image resizer>(3) ok>(4)close. Never had it degrade an image or remove strips. The final size in pixels is a saveable preference (tick the 'save as default' at the bottom of the dialog box).
    Those are my principles, and if you don't like them . . . well, I have others.

    I use "JPEG Resampler". Google for it. Free.

    it's the same number of clicks to operate. The image I tried it on shrunk to 9kb with VSO and 13kb with the Power Toy one.

    MS resizer takes 3 clicks and so simple to use.

    How do I compress it? with IrfanView.
    If you are going to use the pic on the internet, save it as a GIF. This will reduce filesize greatly. And for net viewing, 256 color GIFs look almost identical to JPGs.

    If you want to use JPG, chenge the save quality to 50. It cuts way down on filesize.

    Hi.
    The way I reduced photos I have posted was to email them to myself , when you do that you are asked if you want to reduce file size. Say yes then the photos emailed to yourself are of postable sizes.
    Hope this helps.

    So, 2006 was a long time ago... Do we still need to keep images under 100kb?
