Independently changing image size AND Resolution in PSE4

I just upgraded to PSE4.  

In v 3 I could adjust the file size of an image by reducing the resolution.  In v4 size and resolution are not independent; I can't change one without the other changing.  

So it doesn't appear that I can reduce the file size by simply reducing the resolution; but surely there is a way.

Changing the resolution only alters the number of pixels printed per inch. This is only for print.

To alter the image size while sustaining the resolution you can either...

Image > Image size and work from here or go to

Help > Resize image.

If you tell us what the image is for... Print or Web I can give better advice.

The object was to reduce the overall FILE size; for people who don't have High Speed Internet access, as well as for web pages.  All I wanted to do was change the dimenstions of the image, AND reduce the resolution; in order to create a smaller FILE.

I have found the answer to this question.  

The solution is to go to Alt-Ctrl-I (resize iimage) and uncheck the "Resample" box.  When I did that I was able to change either; size or resolution, independently.
