I can only give advice on Photoshop.If you go to "File/Save for web" then a bit of playing around with the "image size" and "Quality" you'll get the desired results.

Re: Optomising pic for this site

I've just started experimenting with Gimpshop for the Macintosh. It's pretty good and gives 90% of Photoshop's functionality for free! I haven't tossed out my Photoshop installation yet but I'm doubtful that I'll upgrade it now I've discovered this.
