I have some pictures but their 5mb+ and I can't host them on image shack if their that big?

How do I reduce the (mb) size? Is there a free and simple program to do this?

Noob question I know :confused:

I don't know of any internet site that does this, but what picture editing software do you have?

GIMP? Photoshop? anything like that?

Or alternatively, download Adobe Lightroom and that'll resize them for you.

Imagewalker Will batch resize, convert etc

* See you images in their full glory: Edit, view and slideshow images in full screen mode.
* Automatically scan metadata information (e.g., size, date taken, exposure or aperture) or add your own keywords and descriptions to keep track of your photos.
* Work the way you want: ImageWalker will index images for speed in any folder and does not force you to keep images in an enforced folder structure.
* Save time: manipulate and print multiple images at a time using batch functions.
* Preserve photo quality by using Non destructive (lossless) JPEG rotation and crop.
* Upload images to Flickr: preserving description and keyword information while registering the images flicker ID in local image metadata.
* Generate HTML web galleries for displaying images on your web own site.
* Preview and view RAW image formats with full colour management support for ICC and ICM profiles.
* Runs great on slower computers and Unicode compliant
* And best of all...its FREE for home use

I think I use the imag resizer from microsoft. It's there on a right click...

I wouldn't use it for anything I wanted as a keeper, but as a down and dirty quick solution it des the job pretty well.

Can't i'm afraid, only got it installed on me editing PC, which is not connected to the net like this one. And it's far too much effort to transfer between the two i'm afraid :(
