I have some high resolution jpeg images, some about 1MB, which I'd like to put on my site. Is there a way to reduce the MB size without losing too much quality. I'm using Homestead - a wysiwyg builder and these images are chewing into my allocation. Any help would be gratefully received. Thanks.

If it's a .gif format, you can optimise it on-line here:

If you want to do it on your PC, or have .jpg files as well, you can download some free optimisers here:

I've used JPG Cleaner and GIF Optomizer, but there are others on that page you can try.

easythumbnail's will both resize and optimize images in individual or batch form.
