Harold, I am far from being a computer image expert, but have you tried http://www.irfanfiew.com ?
It is a freeware but it is excellent. I believe you can reduce the size of your photos w/o having to crop them. I use it to manipulate the photos for the ASI Checklist. Of course I do crop them to have more iris photo and to have them about the same width of ca. 1" wide. You have a choice of what you want or do not want to do. A relative of mine has PhotoShop and other programs but he uses IrfanView quite often. He likes it too.

Subject: [iris-photos] best compression strategy

Hopefully there are some computer  image experts lurking on this group. I am scanning 5" x 7" photos at 150 dpi for a web site. File sizes are 75 to 100 kb range. I need the file size to be 25 to 35 kb without cropping. Is there a best strategy for getting this reduction while maintaining a good to excellent image quality and the best image size for the viewers?
