trueBuddi Image Compressor

The pics we take with a digital camera are usually around 1.5-3 MB based on the resolution. I often waste time and bandwidth to upload such big images in websites like snapfish, orkut, facebook, flickr. I always wanted a simple utility that could be used to compress images in a folder. I wrote one software during my BE but did not carry it with me to US so I always had to use some Paint.NET or other Image Processing tools.
I started my new year coding with Image Processing tool - trueBuddi Image Compressor.
I would upload it on my website. It is very easy to use and is available
It requires .NET Framework 2.0 to run. Right now it compresses images within a specified folder and that too only those with .JPG extension.
Future revisions:
1. Individual File Compression
2. Image Processing Operations - Contrast enhancement, Brightness, Noise Reduction, Sharpening, etc.
3. Support for conversion among JPG, TIFF, PNG and other such types.
Ideas welcome. The tool is free to use and is not restricted with any kind of license. You can do a Reflector and anything that you want. Just do not change the title of the Frame.
