I have a photo in jpeg format that I am unable to reduce from 110 KB to 45kb. What software can do this?

    \$\begingroup\$ I can reduce just about any JPEG to an arbitrarily small size by reducing it to a size of 1 pixel x 1 pixel. What constraints do you have which prevent you from doing this? \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ To expand on what Philip is asking: What are you using this image for? What are the pixel dimensions of the image, and can those be reduced? 45kb is rather small, especially for a photograph. \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it's really more about general image manipulation than photography. Could be a good candidate for Superuser. \$\endgroup\$

You can reduce the quality, then it becomes smaller. For this you can use GIMP, Photoshop, ..

Are you sure that you need such a bad quality?
