There are several alternative ways of reducing the size of images (1-3 allows several selected images at a time):


1.Call Convert files. The reduced images can be found under Workdirectory\Organizer\Conversions        
2.Call Export Web album, and determine the image width. The reduced images can be found under Workdirectory\Organizer\Album Export
3.Call Mail Files. The reduced images can be found under Workdirectory\Organizer\Conversions
4.Open the image in the Image Editor. Call Edit > Resize, and save the result manually under a new filename.
5.Open the image in the Image Editor. Call File > Save As, and store the image under a more efficient format (i.e. BMP to JPEG) or using a different quality factor.

The easiest and most efficient way to reduce the disk space for your images, is to store them in the JPEG (photos) or GIF (web graphics) format. If you have a directory with BMP files for instance, you can run a Batch Conversion over it, with a filetype change to JPEG, to drastically reduce the needed disk space.
If you archive JPEG or other compressed images using the CodedColor ZIP Utility, you will not gain any diskspace, as JPEGs are already compressed. For uncompressed BMPs however, you will see a reduction.
