      Go to http://www.irfanview.com/ and download the free/shareware
      program IRFANVIEW. With just a couple of clicks you can resize any
      photo to any size. With Irafanview you can just resize the photos
      quickly and easily and you can then upload them to any site that has
      size restrictions.
