I just use Windows Paint.  Open Paint and then open the photo file.  Use the Re-size button to open a dialog box; make sure you tick the box to retain the aspect ratio, then reduce the photo size - I use the percentage setting. Reducing the size of the photo by 50% reduces the file size by around 75%, but you will retain adequate clarity for posting on the web.  Choose SaveAs  and change the filename so that you keep the original file at its original size and resolution. and also save the smaller file for posting.

You may also be able to do something similar using software that may have come with your digital camera.

Of course, if you use an Apple Mac .....!
