I've got some photos, they are about 6mb, I need them to be under 1mb. What the fuck do I do?
If not, resize them to 99% of their size, and that seems to make them seriously smaller in terms of mb.
Dunno why. But it works.
maybe there are too many colours in them? reduce the number of colours. most colours are the same anyway

will recreate them in paint for you.
how do you get photos off your mobile/tablet whatever, onto the internet? malo told me once, but I forgot
got some amazing pictures of my chillis, if you're interested
and it has a pretty good batch converter
Choose the first option.
compress them into a .zip/.rar file?
I need to be able to do this tonight or my life may well be over.
sorry, it's just not technologically possible yet.
cos jpegs are lossy zip is a lossless compression format (i.e. zipping doesn't rally do anything not already done during the act of saving as a (lossy) jpeg. http://stackoverflow.com/a/8776381
it's been ages since we had a photoshop day
open them in this, then go to image > image size and change it. job done.
what model phone and tablet do you have?
On both counts mate
and it will mean you can access everything from brower
Like japes said.
If I iirc, you can actually set a specific target filesize, setting constraints on how small or how low quality you're prepared to accept the image to be.
90% quality (our even 80%) tends to be unnoticeably different to 100% for on-screen purposes.
And if it's for on-screen use, it's likely that a 6mb image can be significantly reduced in size (use your screen resolution settings as a guide to how big an image will appear on-screen - if your screen resolution is, say, 1680x1050, that's the max size an image can be on /your/ screen, so there's little use in an image being any bigger than that, unless you're gonna be cropping, or there's some other intended purpose further down the line - dpi is a distraction for on-screen scenarios).
