Any graphics program should be able to get it down quite a bit, try the free Irfanview click here

Try Microsoft Paint which is on most systems.

We tend to forget paint!

If all you want is something to resize images try Just Resize It click here which is simple utility sitting on your desktop or system tray. Just set it to whatever resolution you want for emailing such as 600x450 pixels and drag any images you want to it. Hey presto, resized!

A quick cheat without downloading progs.Select the file in windows, either right click and choose e-mail pic or go to lefthand side of screen where it will have e-mail picture under tasks. Select e-mail and you will be asked if u want to resize- say "yes" it will do it for you. Then either send it to yourself and save it or copy the attachment!
