How about just dragging the selected files and dropping them onto the zip utility?

But then the recipient of the email would have to un-zip them just to see them...

I prefer to put a lot of files into an archive, but you're right...  JPG files become not smaller with ZIP and e-mail clients mosten have the option "Save ALL files ..."
