How to easily downgrade quality of photos?

I have tons of photos of stuff I want to sell but when I post pics on kijiji etc, it takes so long to upload photos.

Is there an easy way to convert pics to smaller quality but still keep the details of the photo so that people can see what an item looks like in a photo, without having to downgrade photo by photo manually?

Thanks

Usually just converting to a bitmap to a jpeg will give you much better file size at a fair quality tradeoff.

Run Irfanview in batch conversion mode.

Irfanview is a great free image viewer and image conversion tool that anyone who works with images should have on their system. http://irfanview.com/
