Compress bmp file
Posted on 1998-11-11
I scanned a few pics for my home page using various scanning software like Deskscan at college, however the file size for a 6x4 inch photo is something silly like 1.5 megs!
1. Why is that large
2. I was told to use something like Paintshop Pro to convert it to a *.jpeg file, but even then it only comes down to 200 or 300k. How is it that a lot of the pics on the net are only 20 or 30k, load very fast and are extremely good quality. Any tips on how to do this with mine?
3. What is the html command to have the pic displayed on a web site. I used Adobe Pagemill but it didn't have that feature, and when I hyperlink the *.jpeg file, it starts to download it of the server.
