Depending on the JPEG quality threshold you specify, you might not see any
change in the image itself even though the file size WILL be smaller.  This
is a GOOD thing to me. :)

Crank the image quality down to 10% and see if you see any quality
degredation.  :)  If you're specify quality in the 80 - 100% range, you
might not readily see any differences in image quality unless you look very

Good luck!

Steve Crane,
Thanks for the tip. I have snipped the rest of your message for it is a
I did not know about the Preview option in the save window. A point however
that with Gimp-2.0.1 I see the file size changing but nothing seems to
change in
the image. Is this old eyes or am I being thick again?
