There are quite a few photo editing programs that will let you resize you pictures. I use Paint Shop Pro 6.2 and it is user frendly. I also have the program that came with my digital Camera came with CAMEDIA Master 2.5. It is easy to resize your pictures. If you make them around 600 X ??? it will make it so people like me do not have to scroll across the screen to see the whole picture. I like the 800 X 600 screen so I can see things without putting my reading glasses on.
You can go to download.com and search for "easy thumbnails". that is a simple program that is used to re-size pictures. i use it to resize pictures when i want something quick. .works great. can even do a whole batch of picturs at once..
Eric, what I do is take my raw digital camera pictures and reduce them down to 500 X 375, which fit on a web page nicely. I use Paint Shop Pro 3.11, an old version, because it is so easy to use. THEN after I reduce the physical size, I user anothe program called "JPEG Optimizer". This program reduces the file size down to just about anything I want. The more you reduce the file size, the more the image quality degrades.
The picture below, was originally 415 KB, after it was reduced to 500 X 375, it's current size, it was 258 KB, now after running through Optimizer, it is only 31.7 KB.
You should be able to find the program at download.com.
Another option is to use Microsoft Photo Editor which comes with Windows. Just open the picture file (jpg), click on the "image" pull down and select resize. You can also crop the picture first before resizing to adjust what you want to show.
