    Hi Sunitha,

    There are so many softwares available for this.. "Advanced JPEG compressor" is a good one.. search for that in google, u will find out sites for downloading that..

    Try in Adobe Photoshop

    Sunitha,

    I presume you are working with image files that are JPEG or GIF types. Generally BMP files are huge. JPEG & GIF files can be reduced to considerably smaller size without loosing their clarity.

    To reduce the size of such image files try using Adobe Photoshop. If you get to the 'image' menu and choose 'Image size', it will give you your pictures existing pixel dimensions. You can reduce height & width of the image in pixels which will automatically reduce the size of the image file in bytes.

    Hope this information is of help to you.

    Lots of Love,
    Rathi

    how to compress a picture to your liking

    hi sunita ,
    i am sheela (sushdevi inIL)
    you take the picture to photoshop and then take the option image .there you would find an option image size ..make it 620 by 280 or your desired ratio..and then save it ...the picture would reduce to your liking ...
    regards sheela (sushdevi)
