you could use the strech function in ms paint, or if you have photoshop then you could try something in that.

1) Open picture in paint. Not "microsoft picture veiwer" or whatever crap is the default program to run when you double click on something.
2) Navigate the menu: top bar/image/stretch-skew
3) Enter some values less than 100% in the stretch section.
4) SAVE AS a .jpg or a .png
