If you have a Digital Camera to take the photos then Software to resize and improve your photos should have been supplied with the camera, usually it would be Photoshop Elements.

Failing that, you can change the settings in your camera to give a photo of suitable size for the web, around 600x400 pixels would be fine.

Make sure you are not saving your files as .BMP files.
BMPs take up alot more space than other file types that are pictures of the same size.
Try and save them as JPEGs or GIFs if possible to make the file size smaller, but not the picture size.

If that program doesn't work, its actually pretty simple to change the format.
Usually you can open the pic up in MS paint, and go to save as, then select file type(its under the filename) then just pick the type you want.

Or you can go the more complicated route, When your on the folder on your computer, there should be a menu called "Tools" and under it you will find Folder Options. Click on it and it will bring up a panel. Then click the tab at the top that says "View", Then scroll down and you will find a check mark box that says "Hide extensions for known file types" Uncheck it and press ok.
Then all the files on your computer will show the file type in the name for example, the name was "Photograph" will now be "Photograph.bmp". Then you can change the file name just as easy as renameing it by clicking ONCE on the name, and change the .bmp to .jpeg. Just be carefull when you rename other things that you don't delete the file type on other files, otherwise your computer won't recognize the file type and will be pretty much useless.
