I use a photo resizer found in xp powertoys.
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-GB/windows/xp-downloads#2TC=powertoys
its about half way down the powertoys page - image resizer
it loads as a right click option when you right click the picture, the resized image is saved as a copy with the name (small) added to the file name.

And there is irfanview, a free image editor that has been on almost every PC mag cover disc this century.
