    Good Day

    In windows XP, Pictures folder I can select say 5 pictures. Then I klik to
    email them. I then get a window asking to make the files smaller or keep the
    same size before emailing them. This process will take a 700 kb image and
    compress it down to about 40 kb. My question is would there be some kind of
    hidden application within XP that I can use to do batch compressing? Or
    would it be a downloadable app that I would have to use. Can you suggest
    some apps please.

    TIA

    Irfanview does it very well, and it's free.
