    You will need an image editing program. One of the most simple is IrfanView. It's a free program, just google it. It makes for easy editing of images.

    if trying to resize to upload hon, i often just right click and open with paint and save, which makes it smaller in size.
    and for my avatar's lately i've found this excellent:

    If you open it in paint, then go to the "image" tab, then select "resize/skew" and alter the top 2 boxes with numbers in to what size you want it to be (it usually works on percentage so if you write 75 / 75 it'll be reduced by a quarter size...) :) works for both enlarging/reducing but obviously if you enlarge it by alot itll be poorer quality.

    Oh and make sure both numbers are the same EG, 20 / 20 not 20 / 40 or you'll end up with a skewiff pic =D !!!

    simple :) x

    edit: oh and you can do it more than once so if its still too big/small just reduce or enlarge it again!! x
