You will need some kind of image editor, which will let you crop and resize your images, as well as do all kinds of changes to them.
There might be free and shareware programs, then there are cheap ones in the $50 - $100 range, like Paint Shop Pro or Picture It or some good ones from Adobe, and if you are a pro you will use Photoshop, which relieves you of about $600.

OH NO, not another hobby :lol:

When you save a picture as a JPG in PS (photoshop), it will ask you what image quality, or more to the point, compression you would like. This is one way. Then there is cropping (look for a tutorial for that), and image size ("Image", "Image Size..." then adjust the dimensions there)

Sorry for turning this into a computer forum
Just remember that tutorials for photoshop are abundant and shouldn't be hard to find.

Cich,

Appreciate your help. Right now just going to save as and save for internet and adjusting quality so it meets the limits.
