    Another contender is jpegmini - easy to use GUI just drag & drop. HOWEVER, be aware that (by default) it replaces the original image so either 'create new' or copy source file before shrinking.

    I fitted stainless ones of these in my Pal and they work really well - fiddly to get the rope / tape knotted inside tight enough but works really well.

    You could do that trip but only in 'open' season as the stretch just below Bass lake goes through a SSSI and canoeing is restricted to Jan-Mar (I think).

    Hello & welcome.

    Canoeing & walking / climbing seems to go hand in hand as as Mal has said, you get a completely different approach to the hills from the water.
