>Paint shop pro does jpg's just fine, click on save then click on "OPTIONS", you got to play with the compression leval a bit (i found 70 - 75 works quite well). for gif compression try this site http://www.websitegarage.com/
Thanks for that "OPTIONS" tip. I should have known better. It did the trick. I do still get a little better image quality for jpg's on the initial scan though, but I don't always have that as an option. And thanks for the websitegarage tip. I was able to get a 90k gif to about half before it lost too much image quality. I should be able to use this for my 4TheLord site.
