I use Microsoft Photo Editor, which is an "optional install" component that comes with most versions of the popular Microsoft Office software suite.

It works with most file formats, and allows for proportial re-sizing with ease.
It also has a "center on page" and "fit to page" capability when printing.

I like it. Easy = Good

For one if you take anymore pics, change the resolution on your camera to the lowest resolution. Secondly, open the pic up in Microsoft Paint and see if it is saved as a JPG instead of a Bitmap.

This is the quickest and easiest way to resize photos. Little microsoft add-on.

All you have to do is right click on your photo, select "resize" and then tell it what size you want and it creates a new copy in that size in your file.

The following link has a few downloads available. Look for the "Image resizer" one in the column on the right side of the page.
