There are a few options that you can choose to reduce a photo file size.

a) Resolution of the image in dpi
b) size (width x height) of the image e.g. 800x600
c) Compression of the image if it's in JPG; and BMP has a large file size.

If you digitally enhance/alter an image, it will normally has a larger file size compared to the original.

Adobe Photoshop has a wonderful choice of features to reduce file size, my favourite for web use is SAVE AS WEB. Where Photoshop will reduce the image resolution, and set a high compression on the JPEG.

I'd recommend Adobe ImageReady for the less technical user. It's easier to use and its much more light weight than Adobe Photoshop.

But if you cannot afford Adobe products, then maybe can go open source, such as GIMP which can be found at http://www.gimp.org.

Description :

GIMP is an acronym for GNU Image Manipulation Program. It is a freely distributed program for such tasks as photo retouching, image composition and image authoring.

It has many capabilities. It can be used as a simple paint program, an expert quality photo retouching program, an online batch processing system, a mass production image renderer, an image format converter, etc.

GIMP is expandable and extensible. It is designed to be augmented with plug-ins and extensions to do just about anything. The advanced scripting interface allows everything from the simplest task to the most complex image manipulation procedures to be easily scripted.
