In Photoshop

2. In the window that has just poped up enter the images new dimensions. 800px is recommended for posting on trials-forum.

2. Unlike photoshop paint only allows you to enter a percentage of the original size. 50% is a good starting point though. (Again aim for about 800px wide)

Found a good little tool for vista that replaces the windows resizing powertoy that was available for XP, thought it could be included in this tutorial. Its called VSO image resizer and once installed you just right click your pictures and convert them in batches or singly.

Available here:
