Photoshop, Photoshop, Photoshop. It will do the web compression for you. You can create what's called an Action in Photoshop to do a whole folder of these unattended. As far as the Mac JPG to a pc goes. Just make sure when you create the script in Photoshop that you append to the file names the .jpg in the file name.

NO!!! Not photoshop!! are you crazy, doing that will give you a large, pain in the ass "jpg/gif" file. Even if you get the latest Photoshop 5.5, which has the feature "save for web" won't do it anyway, because the colors becomes washed out using that feature. You should get "Macromedia Fireworks". Will give you comression to the max without losing quality. Just pick your quality/no. of colors in Fireworks. DONT USE PHOTOSHOP! You'll end up looking so unprofessional with such file sizes. Look at big companies like amazon.com. cnn.com etc.etc. what software do you think they use? FIREWORKS!

Yellow Power. You should read the question more carefully. He was looking for a way to batch convert items. Fireworks cannot do this. I aggree with your assesment about how Photoshop can create that washed out effect, but that is not the question. The question is batch converting.

Why send to PC? Upload from Mac straight...

"Also, what is the best compression tools to compress images (24-bit color)?"

You want to convert all at once? Then get "Adobe Image Ready 2.0". and create a droplet with selected jpg quality/gif colors. Then drag and drop all the files on that droplet.

"In fact, can we see the JPG file (from Mac) in PC?"

Of course Pc can read jpg's from mac. duh...

gorexy , is here for our advice to to be made to feel like he's an idiot. If he knew the answers he wouldn't be asking. Just because some of us are not as smart as you, why don't you keep the "duh..." comments to yourself.
