Davered1 brought up a good point on one of his posts about file size.  When I scan a pic in I leave the size set to original and set the resolution at 72dpi and that is it.  Davered suggested using spinwave...   Is there someway that I could change the way I am scanning to reduce the file size or do I need to use a compresser??  I see some others posting pics that are big in size but not big in kbytes...   Any and all response appreciated

I can't do much with my scanner,I just crunch them.

Also are you scanning .jpg or .gif ? .jpg seems to use less kb's

I am using .jpg.  I guess the reason for this post is that I have an option on my scanner to lower the "quality" of the .jpg but that tends to make it grainy...

Are you scanning at 72dpi?
Are you crunching one at a time on the site or did you foot the bill to get the program???

Just curious,  I have tried to get my files smaller but still look really good and it looks like the cruncher program that you have suggested is about the best option...

Thanks

I can change my dpi as well but leave it at 72,did some at 100 and it uses to much space and not much better.

I only crunch 1 at a time(cheap),spend to much on development charges.1 hour development = $12.88 and 1 week development = $3.88.

Tried ,but I CAN'T WAIT
