Question Software to shrink photo size?

I have a 3.2MB photo whose size I would like to reduce to under 3MB. Is there any decent free software that will allow me to do this?

I personally like Irfanview for simple resizing/cropping.

You could also download GIMP, the freeware opensource Photoshop replacement
That'll do what you want, and more.
