I got pics that are all over 600kb, but a website i want to post them on requires under 600kb. How can i fix it?

The slow way with MS Paint, one at a time. Google has a free program called Picasa that can alter the size of a batch of pics, though.

If you're on XP there's a very nice Power Toy that will give you the option of right clicking on any image and then creating a resized copy. I use it all the time.

www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/downloads/powertoys/xppowertoys.mspx

Right side of the screen, scroll down to "Image Resizer".

Irfanview

Will work well for the purposes of web posting.

You can either resize them or increase the compresion when you save them.

Get Paint shop Pro

There is an option to "Export for Web" which has a great little wizard to change the Compression factor.
You can cut the file size down to 1/20th without scaling the image.

Of course Scaling is also an option.

Are they from a digital camera? Well, either way:

Chop the image size/resolution down. Around 800x600 pixels is more then enough for the web (don't forget to crop too)
Make sure it's JPEG
Decrease the quality percent until you see a difference, or until the file size gets small enough

You can resize in Microsoft Photo Editor (part of older MS Office).

First crop the picture as desired, then resize.
