Once you have opened the photo click on the edit, organise or share button. A new window will open and look along the top and you will see a edit tab, click that and select the resize option and go for the 800. All you have to do is click the resize and save button.

That should do it

I use Irfanview (www.irfanview.com) it is free seems to have plugins for everything if needed & works well.

The easiest way to resize photos in Windows, any version, is to use this programme. http://imageresizer.codeplex.com/releases/view/30247

Once installed it adds an option to the right click menu of Windows Explorer. You can select one or more image files and have a range of output sizes. This was originally part of Microsoft's Power Tools for Win XP, but has been developed by someone else for later versions. This link is for the stable release - there is another newer version which is described as a preview.
