How do I compress a jpeg file using windows 2000 Prof. Do I need another program that is not part of Win 2000Prof?
I have just scanned a page of text and want to save it as a jpeg file. I already tried a page of text and saved it as a jpeg file but it was very large. It was about 237kb. How can I get it to 30-60kb?

You can use an image editing package (Paint Shop Pro from JASC is good for this) to set the compression level of the JPEG image.  This is done during the saving procedure under options.

Bare in mind that the greater the compression level you use at the saving time the lower quality the image will be.

Also you can resize the image to a smaller size, keeping the text readable, but this will dramatically reduce the size.

If you have only text, you do not need many colors, use an image package to reduce the color depth of the image to 12 colors (do not use 2 colors as the text will become unreadable).

Finally, you can compress the JPEG file further in a compression program such as WinZip, WinRar or WinAce.
