    Do you have any editing software? If so, most of them include the ability to crop a photograph.

    If not, you can download all types of free programs that will resize photos.

    If you have microsoft office picture manager, you can do a very quick and easy resizing of photos.

    Open your photo in Picture Manager

    Click "edit pictures"

    Underneath "change picture size" you will see two options:
    "resize" (allowing you to resize the photo either with a custom size, a pre-determined size, or a percentage of the original size)
    "compress pictures" (which reduces the size of the photo and the file size, in 3 different increments)

    Save your picture and you're done!

    Remember to sharpen after resizing.
