Open a photo up in whatever you view it in Then look at the options and see if there is a resize option. then save it at the new size.

That should give you a JPG file of about 55 Kbytes.

Don't know what your OS is but, I run XP and if I right click the image and select Send to > Mail Recipient, I get the option to reduce the size of the image. It is usually reduced to around 20-30kb.

I have tried other ways of reducing images by making the resolution 800 x 600 but I can't get them as small as the other method.
