Photshop-wise, I usually do a "save for web" at anywhere from 10-30 quality jpg.
Usually in the middle of that range, and rarely more than that.

Not sure what else would be different.

I usually save the full-size "raw" version, as is, with only a new name. Then I save a
cropped second version at 72 dpi and 6-10 inches on the long side. Then I make
more changes (cropping again, maybe, shrinking the image size an inch or two or
more, depending, and, perhaps, sharpening it once, before clicking to "save for web."

I use the "four up" option in the window when saving for web, so I can see the
comparisons. Then I pick the lowest quality level that doesn't seem to include a
significantly noticable drop off.

There is a drop off, of course. That is unavoidable. Sometimes, though, it is amazing
how small a file size can get, and other times it is frustratingly hard to get it below
100k without an unacceptable drop off for posting. Most of the time, though 20-50 is
possible for a 6 to 8 inch image (at 72dpi, so it depends on your monitor's
resolution).
