I HAVE SORTED THIS.

ok, i have 2 signature immages, each around 25k. they are in jpeg format, i have tried everything i can to try to make them small enough to be allowed on the forum. i need them 12k or lower

can anyone help?
i need to know how to make them smaller, i tried saving them as different formats but that made them up to 110k as a PNG!! the smallest size i can get them to is 20k and then they go awfull quality..

If reducing the images to a smaller size with good resolution works for you instead of using an online tool to reduce the jpeg file size only, then Paint is ok. It's a tradeoff here as you can do both, reduce size of image and reduce quality of image. Image compression lets you reduce an image's file size, without reducing its width or height. Cropping unnecessary parts helps too. Depending on size you want to use, you may want to maintain the best quality. Online tools, should you not have a good graphics editing program, are useful to experiment with. I would make an exact copy of the image first before experimenting. Even if you try to remember to always save as a different file name, original may get overwritten. :blink:

More info about various ways at About.com's Graphics Software.

Here is a page link which has many Web-based Image Tools and Online Services.

Just my 2 cents. :whistling:
