    Save the images in JPEG format, then import them into a GIF compression program, and save them again in GIF format. That'll compress each image at least 50%, while not losing much quality at all.

    I personally like GIF Optimizer. You can download it from Webattack.com. By the way its ranked the top by Webattack.com, 5-stars!

    BMP (Bitmaps) should not be used for web applications. They have bad compression (none?).

    The only 3 to consider are JPEG, GIF and PNG. Although the last one is not really interesting as not all browsers support it.

    Now over to GIF and JPG. You can read a tutorial here.

    GIF should be used for images with a small amount of colours. JPG should be used for photographs.

    Don't even think about implement .bmp images on your site. Your visitor will immediately turn away, 'cause in my experience the loading time and size with that format has been horrible. The suggestions of the others are good, but I just came here to tell you I would suggest using .bmp.
