Michaelair,
JPG's files are unique in that if the picture is 10K bytes when displayed, it may be only 4K bytes when stored. Nice trick, huh? Meaning...they are already compressed.  Now if you are asking how to change the actual size permanetely...
Every image is made up of pixels. This means that you can also denote an image by number of pixels. For example, the "sally.gif" image is 97 pixels high by 64 pixels wide. How do I know that? I have an expensive graphics program that tells me so. How would you know? Without a specific program, you'll have to play around with the numbers in these commands a little bit but it's easy to do.
