    I am scanning pics and need to shrink the file size. MS Paint isn't cutting it anymore because it seems to make it lose quality big time. So what do you all use? I just need something simple to make files smaller. I have some scans over 300k and want them to be under 100k is all. Thanks.... /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    I have that... well 2001 but it's almost the same (my firend has 2002). I never really did much with it and don't have instructions. So how do you do it so I can see if it's like that on mine... /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    Try this one: Thumbs Plus

    I've been using it since it was released for Windows 3.0

    Free to try it out for 30 days and cheap if you want to buy it.
