    You need to reduce two things
    • The size in pixels on the longest edge
    • The filesize, which is controlled by the JPEG compression level

    To make that easy, you can use BDsizer http://www.softpedia.com/get/Multime...BD-Sizer.shtml

    I often use BDsizer, as suggested by Kym. Just open the program, drag and drop the photo, set photo dimensions then save at what ever mb size you want. Very easy to use.

    If you don't want to download a new program and have Windows 7 or greater, Paint will resize the image quite easily. Just don't forget to choose "Save As" after re-sizing so you don't make your original smaller. In the home menu just click on resize select pixels instead of percentage and choose a size under the maximum allowed for the site. Picture is below as an example.

    Usually I resize using CS3 as I often have it open on image anyway for PP. However, sometimes when batch resizing I use the free tool Faststone photo resizer (http://www.faststone.org/FSResizerDetail.htm).
