It depends on what graphic program you're using. I do most everything in Photoshop. Is it a bmp? (too large) a jpg or gif. What are its dimensions? (should not be more than 500 pixels wide). If you want, email it to me as an attachment and I'll post it.

If you're using Windows:-

Cut and paste it into 'Paint'
Click on 'Image', then 'Stretch/skew'
Reduce size to about 70% in both axis.
Under 'Image' 'Attributes' make sure it's less than 640x480 & < 100Kb.
Then 'File', 'Save as' and select 'JPEG' from the pull down menu.

Or, what I do is copy them onto an Excel spreadsheet, right-click the image and change the size there. Then cut & paste to paint, and as above.

My favourite picture editor is Irfanview. It is free , easy to use and has tons of features.
