I consider myself a photoshop wizard but I just cant seem to get the image below 72k for the life of me!!
At least without seriously compromising image quality.

How is it done?

Have you tried using the "Save For Web" option? It allows you to compare the original image to the one you are about to save, using various adjustments such as Quality percentage for .JPGs, palette reductions for .GIFs, and so on. It shows you what the file size will be if you save it with the palette/quality options you have chosen, so it makes it easy to see how the changes affect the image quality vs. file size.

If you've already tried that (and it didn't work), and you don't mind other folks working with a copy of the original photo, just post a copy of it here and a few of us will take a shot at tweaking it for you.
