Resize pictures

I need to resize (make them smaller) some pictures,
I'd like to do it without  getting that saw-like distortion,
I know it can be done with Corel PhotoPaint,
is it possible to do this with Photoshop/PaintshopPro/whatever?

Yes, this is possible without problems. E.g. see Photoshop: Image|Image size... to rescale (I have a german copy of PS so the actual menu item names may differ slightly). In the appearing dialog you should select bicubic interpolation to avoid artifacts.

my version of ps is in dutch so that will be
similar to your german,
can i ask you a question concerning these language differences?
I have this ps tutorial on layer effects,
in the layer-effect pop up window you can select the "mode" ("modus" in dutch), one of the options in english versions here is "screen",
I cannot figure out how that has been translated in dutch ("scherm?" "zeef?" what do they mean?) - or is this a ps 5.5 feature - i have 5.0,

will give you points for this one too,  

Urko, I also have PS 5.0 here and can nowhere find an option which corresponds to a screen mode in the layer effect popups. Perhaps it is really a 5.5 feature, I don't know.
