I wish to resize a picture which is over 1000 x 1000 to 100 x 120 pixels to upload onto a forum.

Is this possible and how do I do it?
It is in JPEG format

You can download this app. for free click here and under image menu click resize/resample. Or if you have another picture editing app. you should be able to do the same on that.

Get IrfanView click here

Open the picture in IrfanView, Image/Resize.

Microsoft office Picture manager will give you 160 x 160? If thats any help.

That's extremely small, unless it's for an avatar. Most editing progs will do this, including the aformentioned irfanview, but I would reccomend jpeg resizer, approx 30 sec download click here,

.."aspect ratios". This is the relationship between the width and height of your image.

If your original image is 1000 x 1000 then it is a square image. If you make it 100 x 120 then it becomes more rectangular.

Imagine stretching a square photo to be a rectangular photo - features etc. get stretched and can look odd. Might not make a big difference when so small.

I use this. click here
I find it very good,It adds an option to the r/click menu, it also has a box to customize the size.
