If you have Microsoft Office installed then one way to resize an image is to use "Microsoft Office Picture Manager".
|Once you have navigated to the directory with your images right click on the image you wish to resize and select "Microsoft Office Image Manager" from 'Open With'.|
|This will open your image in the editor.|
|Select "Edit Pictures..." and then from there 'Compress Pictures' under the heading 'Change Picture Size'.|
|Select 'Webpages' from under 'compress for' this will compress your image to 448 X 336 pixels... click 'OK'|
|Once that is done select 'Save As' from file, and rename the default filename with the a new suffix of "yourimage-small.jpg" or "yourimage-web.jpg"... so it will now be easily identifyable and ready to upload for fast loading on you webpage.|
