if you upload at photobucket it has a feature that u can resize the pics. or if u have a windows pc open up paint and click Image>Resize/Skew and i would maybe depending on the image do 50% and 50% in both boxes if it still looks to big it again but use a lower number use the same number in both boxes so the pic resizes the same all around

My workaround is somewhat tedious.......I use either Mozilla Firefox or IE 8 as a browser and Outlook 2007 for e-mail. In my "car files" I have a folder labeled "E-mail resizes". When I come across or camera download a picture or diagram I might use here, I highlight and e-mail it (them) to myself and Outlook asks "Make my pictures smaller?" This bullet reduces the file size, not the picture "size". I open my e-mail and save the attached pics to my "E-mail resizes" folder and browse to that in the "manage attachments" window.

I use the route Talamant3z described, upload to photobucket, pic the new size and then imbed the links for posting here....works great and is relatively fast and painless

If you are running Windows XP do a google search for "image resizer powertoy" from microsoft. tiny install, that adds an option to the right click menu to resize images to small, medium, or large, 640x480, 800x600, 1024x768. there is an option to keep the original, or delete...i always keep it.
