easiest way is likely use paint as it is on all computers. Open the file with paint and then select Image > Strech/Skew. Don’t forget to save after you have it sized. You can also crop in this.

The first thing you want to do is to COPY your photos and put all pictures you want to resize in a seperate folder. Or you will shrink your original photos.

if you have windows and are viewing pictures with microsoft office picture manager (or right click on the photo icon and scroll down to "open with" and choose "microsoft office picture manager") once there, there is a button on the top menu bar that says "edit pictures", click that....and then on the right look for "resize". There you’ll have several choices, the easiest way is to choose last option that says "Percentage of original width x height". then type in what you want. (usually 50% is good enuff) then press okay. Then go up to the top "File" scrolll down and press "save".
