    Hi,

    I have a folder of 21 JPEGs totaling about 65MB. When I right click the folder and compress it the compressed zip file is about the same size as the folder. Can you not compress JPEGs or something? How can I get these pictures smaller for e-mailing without decreasing the resolution?

    JPEG is a lossy compressed format. The only way to reduce them further is to remove additional information from your files.

    What MisterMe said.

    Stuffit claims it can compress Jpegs, but I haven't tried it out.
