If you're using Windows, just open it with paint, use the handles to make it smaller, then save it. Or right-click, open with > Microsoft picture manager. Go to the picture menu at the top > compress pictuse > web page display.

Windows should already have boththose programs.

Haha, yea messages have to be a certain length. That Microsoft Office picture manager software works better than paint, but not all computers have it.

Works better than paint?!
Blasphemy! Nothing works better than paint; yours is the statement of a novice.

Er, or not. The readings of the ancient texts is an imprecise art.

Either way, there is little need for anything more extended than paint for most <i>useful</i> tasks.

To reduce the size and/or file-size of a photo:
1) "control-w" and reduce size
2) select section (everything you want should be within the box), and slide this into the upper-left corner until the top and left boundaries are where you want them.
3) drag the lower-right corner until the right and bottom boundaries are where you want 'em.
4) save as a compact file format, such as .jpg/.gif/.png

done

I'm just quite partial to more powerful photo editing programs. I adore Fireworks. And I find that more powerful programs tend to do a better job of compressing the image whilst keeping the quality good. Paint makes it grainy sometimes.
