Vic,
                you have just made my day, if not my whole year. PhotoScape cuts out so many of the interim procedures needed with my current method. Mrs Bagerap will probably thank you too, as she complains that too much of my time is spent photo editing.

 ;D ;D  it is an amazingly good programme for free, circle cropping for coins is one of the best features & of course combining images side by side,  I've experimented with the quality slider versus small kb size and in order to keep the coin to a large size means low quality, all my photo's posted on WoC are lowest quality at around 64kb but look perfectly good

And then there's GraphicConverter for Mac OS which I have been using since ... don't remember whether it was Julius Caesar or Charlemagne who recommended it. ;D  Anyway, it does that too.

Thank you I have been using photoscape for a few years now, and just found out this morning it is the 300 size that is ideal for the forum pics?

It has most of the features mentioned above but no batch processing  ::)  :'(

I prefer Microsoft's Office Picture Manager - just click to compress for web page and save. Alternatively it will also re-size if required.

I have been using photobucket as a backup for my pics and it resizes them
depending on what you are doing with them.

There is a new and very well executed website that allows you to reduce the image size to 70% and speed up the site, I tried it and got the best result, completely free and not requiring any type of registration.
I think you need to check this site https://www.resizejpeg.com/

Thank you!

I just tested it, and I cannot see any differences between the original 1.29 Mb and the resulting 179 Kb images!

OK, nowadays disk space is not very expensive, but if you can save 70% on all .jpg files, then it amounts to several tens of Gb for me!
