When I scan a picture on my HP5p the files are so large it takes friends a long time to d/l the pics.  Can someone point me to a shareware that can reduce the size of the files and still maintain a decent image?

Go to:

www.jasc.com

and downloan the free trial version of Paint Shop Pro. You can do all kinds of edits to .gif and .jpg files in it, including reducing the color depth and optimizing the pallete so that the graphics are as small as possible.

Alternately, go to:

www.websitegarage.com

and run your website (I assume these pics are on a website?) through the GIF Lube service, which will decrease the size of your graphics with a built-in engine. When you like the results, you can right-click and download, and then upload to your site.
