Reduce Image Size
Here's a cool tool to help reduce the size of images for posting on websites, etc. It's called Image Optim and it's super simple to use. Just open the application, drag the pictures onto the interface and it will automatically resize them. I tried it with a screenshot and it bumped it down 39%. One note of caution is that it will replace the old image with the new one, so make a copy of the old one if you want to save it in the original size.
I used to do this process in iPhoto but that takes a bajillion steps. This only takes less than a bajillion, and it's got an awesome looking logo.
