    Hi Melfeky,

    In Photoshop, open your Image. Go to Image > Image Size. Enter the new size you want in pixels. If you keep "Constrain Proportions" checked the image will resize proportionally. Unchecking this box will make the image distort to adjust to the new dimensions.

    Good Vibes!

    You can do it with Microsofts included program Paint!

    Free more versital option!

    Go to your Accessories folder in the:
           Program Files...

    Click the Menu Item:
                  Open...   Find your photo/image
    Open it and then Choose the Menu Item:

    Then Set the Horizontal and Vertical to a Percentage
    that you want to reduce your image.

    Save the image in the same directory but
    rename it by adding a destintive suffix to it:

    Ex: YourPhoto.jpg
          YourPhotoSm.jpg <--- Thumbnail

    Thumbnail: is an smaller sized duplication of an identical larger image
                     used on a webpage to reduce the page load size, and show
                     an example of that image with an option to view the larger one.

    Hope this helps!

    <a href="path/to/your/large/photo.jpg"><img src="path/to/your/thumbnail.jpg"></a>

    try to post your questions separately (instead of a second question after your first one has been answered), and in the appropriate topic (instead of an html question in the graphics area).
