I don't think you want to change the size of your original picture files.
Not a good idea if you want to print.
However, for e-mail and web publishing you certainly should. Here is a way
to do it, keeping your original file sizes and making reduced file sizes.

Image Resizing



To decrease the size of the file for e-mail, web publishing, etc.



Go to this site and download the free Image Resizer. Exe file in one of your
folder.

http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/pro/downloads/powertoys.asp

Once in your folder, double click on it to install it.

Once installed, you right click on a photo file (or on a group of selected
photo files).

Click on Resize image on the opening menu.

A window will open, select the size you want.

New files will be added in your folder, same name as original file but with
the word (small) or (custom) added.



The first time you use it, you may not see Resize image on the opening menu
after you right click on a photo file or if you see it and click on it, it
may not work. If so, do the following:

Click on Run, click on Start and type the following in the textbox:

REGSVR32 SHIMGVW.DLL

and press the Enter key.

Note that there is a space between ...32 and SHI.

You should get a "success" message after pressing the Enter key.



Also, you can download a free photo editing software from here to resize
pictures and edit photos:

If you are using XP
Go here
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/downloads/powertoys/xppowertoys.mspx
and download ImageResiser.exe
It's really easy to use.
