in addition to what others have said, you can do plenty with Fireworks. for 
the price, i love it. you can export PNG files as JPEG, GIF, PNG8, 24, 32, 
TIFF, BMP. You can even optimize certain areas as JPG and others as GIF and 
still others as something else. you can also save a part of a JPG at a high 
resolution and the rest of it at a lower resolution (in v4 at least).

Try "export" under file and see the toolbox for Windows > Optimize.
