Well I am looking for either a site or a freeware tool that can compress the size of images so they can be used in my signature on this site, and others.

Any suggestions or thoughts are appreciated.

Try these links:

http://www.freedownloadscenter.com/Best/free-jpg-shrink.html
http://www.freewr.com/graphics-imaging/ima...compression.php
http://www.softplatz.com/freeware/jpeg-compressor/

All found on the first page of Google... I hope those help...

Otherwise, if you have photoshop, SAVE FOR WEB under the file menu will help you A LOT more than just saving it from the normal FILE > SAVE AS command.

Are you trying to compress the file size, or reduce the physical size of the images?
If it's a .jpeg, the file size can't be compressed much more than what it already is.
Reducing the physical size of the image, will also reduce the file size.
An easy program to use, for reducing image size, is IrfanView.

With Irfanview you can reduce the file size, of a .jpeg, or non-animated .gif, by using 2 methods; by reducing the size of the image, or reducing the quality of the image.
Here's a couple of tutorials explaining how to do it:
Reducing An Image's File Size By Reducing It's Image Quality Using Irfanview
Resizing An Image Using Irfanview

If it's a non-animated .gif, you can also reduce the file size by converting it to a .jpeg:
Changing An Image's File Type Using Ifranview

If it's an animated .gif, you can reduce the file size by resizing the .gif.
You can do that using Irfanview, and UnFREEz:

Well like tg1911 said, JPEGs are pretty much compressed already. Do you have any software tools already like Photoshop, etc?

If it's a .jpeg, the only way to reduce file size, is to reduce the physical size of the image, or the quality of the image.
If the image is a fairly small physical size, slightly reducing the quality won't noticeably detract from the image.
Irfanview uses a slider that ranges from 100 to 0, 100 being the best quality (no reduction).
I can take a 2.25 MB image, set the slider to 75, and reduce the image to 93 KB, without noticeably affecting the looks of the image.
There should be some type of similar procedure in Photoshop Elements, or CS2.
Just play around with it, until you have an acceptable looking image, at the lowest quality you can use.
Even reducing quality a little, should reduce the file size considerably.

Example:

Image is 500 x 375, with slider set to 100 (no reduction in quality): 190 KB
Posted Image

with slider set to 80: 51.3 KB
Posted Image

with slider set to 60: 34.9 KB
Posted Image

If you were to use a smaller image, the effects would be even less noticeable.

I know that this is an old topic, but I have information that may be useful in the future:

Windows has a power tool for free download from the MS website that allows re-sizing of images right from the desktop. A change in image size will almost always result in a change in file size, and most avatars/sigs need to be pretty small, anyway right?
