Nice little tool if you need to do it to multiple images at once!
If you use Photoshop there is a very simple to way to significantly reduce the size of images.
Instead of using the normal "save as", go to file – "save for web & devices".
Then you choose jpg in the top right corner which allows you to set the quality from 0 to 100. I usually set it around 50-60 depending on the image with no noticeable quality-loss at all. And the size in kb is often reduced to 1/4 or even more. Just a little tip that REALLY helps when there is a size maximum for banner ads on certain traffic sources.
does this even make a big difference? both images loaded the same for me…
dont upload on imageshack
