Winzip Compression- Help I'm confused

Sorry to be such a numptie but I've tried to create some zip files to send photos by e-mail and have tried all different levels of compression in the add window, but my whole folder still remains the overall size (approx 100mb). Could someone please advise me as to where I'm going wrong??
Thanks
John

Hi, the original folder will remain the same size, the created zipped folder will be compressed.

You have not mentioned the program you use to create the zipped files. For a guide when using XP

Is there a Zip facility within XP, as suggested by the post from exodus above?

As Marg7 says, compressing images with ZIP barely reduces them at all. Better to use the Image Resizer; click here
