I use this in my Apache .CONF to force compression on all text output:

<IfModule mod_deflate.c>
    AddOutPutFilterByType DEFLATE text/html text/plain text/css text/javascript application/javascript application/x-javascript text/xml application/xml application/xml+rss application/vnd.ms-fontobject application/x-font-ttf

    <IfModule mod_setenvif.c>
        BrowserMatch ^Mozilla/4 gzip-only-text/html
        BrowserMatch ^Mozilla/4\.0[678] no-gzip
        BrowserMatch \bMSI[E] !no-gzip !gzip-only-text/html
        SetEnvIfNoCase Request_URI .(?:gif|jpe?g|png)$ no-gzip dont-vary

    <IfModule mod_headers.c>
        Header append Vary User-Agent env=!dont-vary

You can see, though, that it explicitly ignores images.

Some of my hosting accounts upload images to their sites that are HUGE! They're obviously taking the photo in high resolution and resizing it via Wordpress or something, but the source is over 15MB.

Is there anything I can do via Apache to automatically shrink images to, say, a maximum of 2000px in width? Or a maximum of 1MB in filesize?

Apache does not have such a module or function. You may want to use an external tool like imagick.
