Windows 7: Resizing jpeg Image files

Resizing jpeg Image files

Can anyone tell me a good way to lower the file size of jpg files other than just resizing the image?

I want to use an image for the start-up page but it needs to be lower than 256kb to work.

(The image I want to use is 1.8Mb)

You can increase the compression ratio but at the increased loss of quality.

Hi, sorry it was just a program to change the log on screen automatically but it resizes the jpeg file automatically during the process.
