Personally I've never needed to compress a large number of images before, but if I did I'd definitely be using Caesium.

Find Large Duplicate Files on Your Computer

I'm sure we all have hundreds if not thousands of duplicate files on our computers because of apps that make unnecessary copies of files.

Portable CD/DVD Burning App for Windows 7

With services like Dropbox out there I find myself barely ever needing to burn a CD or DVD anymore, but the need still arises from time to time. These days most utilities like Nero are so overkill and bloated for what I need to do that I gravitate towards apps that are much simpler... and free. In the past my app of choice was CDBurnerXP, but 7Burn is also a great alternative.

Repair and Rebuild the iPhoto Library

I think iPhoto is a pretty nice app for managing images on your Mac, but it's not without its faults. Apple has also realized this and that is why they offer a hidden set of recovery options to account for those problems.

Paste Clipboard as Plain Text

There are several applications that I use on a regular basis that don't have a "paste as plain text" option in them. I'm sure most of you have experienced this at some time or another, and generally what I do in those situations is fire up Notepad, paste in the stuff I just copied, and then re-copy it from Notepad. It's not ideal, but it works.
