Hi

I don't know what software program you are using for editing your shots, but have a look at:

This is a great program for JPEG compression.

JPEG compression can be somewhat confusing. There are generally two different ways programs can give you settings options - either by quality or compression.

High compression = low quality but small flies
Low compression = high quality but larger files

Normally I use a quality setting of about 75%, which would be a medium-low compression and tends to result in file sizes around 100k for a 4x6 print scanned at 150dpi.
