How to make a PNG or BMP image 8" x 10"

I have several images that I need to output as an 8 1/2" x 11".
My recipients are NOT computer-literate so I can't tell them to crop or drag any handles.
I want my recipients to be able to press print and get my image quickly printed on whatever printer they have connected.

I have snagit and Paint loaded on my PC.  

How can I do this?

Just use your photo or image editor and scale it up to that size.  Note that most printers will not print to the edge of the page.  Where is this 'print' button going to be located?

Note that you can easily print images by using the Right-click on the image and selecting Print.

In the print interface, select Letter size and click on Print.Print Pic
I don't know an easier way than that!

I need to output the image in  8 x 10" size.  I need to output it as a PNG or BMP file, not output as in "print" on paper.

I don' t want to "print to fit" or magnify the image.
I have a image which is 2100 x 2500 pixels and I want to make it 8 x 10.

In fact, an image which is 2100 x 2500 pixels can be resized to 8.4 x 10 or about 605 x 720 pixels, if you keep the same aspect ratio (using a resolution of 72 pixels/inch).  

Open the image in Paint and resize to 720 x 605 and save as with a new name

Well... you really don't have control over all of this.  Every image program that can print your image will resize it.  Every time.

In addition, browsers display by pixels and not inches.  Also not your choice.

then you can try this :
open the image with paint - and copy it into a blank Word document
show the rulers, and drag the image to the size you want, by using the  the handles
