But if I don't have a license for a previous office only office 2013.
Is there a free good alternative? I mainly need it for its compression qualities.

The most popular  free picture viewer / image processor is Irfanview
http://www.irfanview.com/

By the way, it's hard to compress image files without resampling / resizing them.

I see that you already closed this question, but still want to comment on your Picture Manager license question. If you install PM in Office 2013 via the technique in the article that pcelba posted, it is in license compliance — and it is free!

IrfanView is a great piece of free software. I recommend it often and use it just about every day to process captured screenshots for posts and articles here at EE (in fact, I used IrfanView for all of the screenshots in the article about Picture Manager). But I still prefer Picture Manager as my default picture viewer for a number of reasons. If you wind up wanting to use Picture Manager, too, along with IrfanView, the article explains how to do it easily via a download from the Microsoft website — in license compliance and free, without the need for any prior version of Office.

Thanks to pcelba for the reference to my article — I really appreciate it! Regards, Joe
