My dad was shown this great little XP toy for his job when he needs to take and send lots of pictures back to the company. Since they have to resize them in order to send them, this tool came in handy--just like when we resize pictures for craftster or our websites. Here's sorta what the boss said:
'Selecting Large usually resizes your images down to 100-150kb.  I know resizing images is a pain for most of us and this will make life MUCH easier.  It will now take a matter of seconds to attach items, so now none of us have any excuses to not attach.'
All you do is rightclick on your image in explorer or the desktop, wherever they are, and click 'Resize'. It makes it infinitely easier than having to open a whole new program. I think it may only by for XP, but hopefully some of you can find it helpful, I DEFINITELY have. There are a bunch of other tools on there you may find helpful if you look around:

ah ha! you miracle worker you!

Now the wintertime is coming,
The windows are filled with frost.
I went to tell everybody,
But I could not get across.
Well, I wanna be your lover, baby,
I don't wanna be your boss.
Don't say I never warned you
When your train gets lost.

Oh Thank You, Thank you, Thank You!! I haven't been able to figure out how to resize since I got the new computer and lost my copy of Microsoft Picture it!

I know how to resize pictures, what I can't figure is out is what size to resize my picture to in order to able to post them?

I've tried changing the size to 3 x 5 and changing the pixels but I can't figure out the right combination?

A little off topic, I know.  One of the recent updates for XP included POP-UP-BLOCKER!

daddio, if you can input the size in pixels, that's usually the easiest. 400 pixels is usually about right. I can never figure out how to do it in inches.

Does anyone know if there's an easy way to do this with Windows that isn't XP? I feel like there must be a simple resizer plugin out there. My techno-unsavvy boss is always complaining about how big the pictures are in the emails she sends and I don't totally trust her skills in resizing in a photo editing program.

I figured out waht works for me for posting here.

I open the picture with Microsoft Photo Editor (it came with the computer). I go to the photos properties and change it's physical size. I change whatever the smaller measurement is to 2" and let the larger one change automatically to maintain the pictures proportions. Then I change the pixels to 200 and save it as a new file that I don't change the original file.

That's what's worked best and easiest for me.
