If you are going to go for the Photoshop trial, I would suggest the Gimp. Open source and free!!

Unless you use every last function in Photoshop, the Gimp will be way more than adequate.

Easier way to get it is from here:

Is there some way to decrease the file size of a jpg from my digital camera?
The CD software that came with the camera I cant use because it is not compatible with Win 2000
I use a little card reader to transfer the photos which works fine but all photos are 700k or more
I tried various methods and regardless if I crop the picture, the file size stays the same
There is nothing in the camera menu to decrease the resolution.

What to do?

Look at PICASA, mentioned earlier in the thread. It should work on Win2000 fine and lets you resize the photos, changing the file size at the same time. Also, look to change the quality of the picture, lower quality means lower file size. Experiment to see what works for you.

I have been using MGI Photosuite Ver. 8 for years and it is just right for me. Recently I got a copy of Picasa and while it is good, I still
like Photosuite better.

I use Picassa for photo management and Paint Shop Pro for advanced editing. With 20,000 photos on the PC, a good management tool is very necessary.

I think Photoshop online is not bad, the features are quite full, it is useful for editing simple photos.

Maybe, you can add a PhotoViewerPro to your lists as one the best in photo management and editing. My family is currently using that program. You may also try it.
