trying to compress files...

I'm using WinRAR to compress pics to smaller file to upload quicker. Problem is that it's not compressing it at all. I tried all the different "compressing method" but neither of them are actually compressing them. It comes out to be same as "original size".

any ideas

Pics...videos...typically can't vbe compressed very much. Hell, things that are already compressed sometimes are larger due to overhead of the compression application/algorithm.

Best bet if acceptable is to resize.
