Teldune, I think gimp has a high learning curve. I tried it but wasn't too successful.
Another, easier program for resizing is Irfanview, it should have an option to resize the picture you want.
That it does a little bit. It has more functions than some of the more basic software packages. I have used Irfanview before for such purposes and like it. So it comes recommended as well.
