Almost any picture editing software will do that for you. Perhaps some came with your camera?

If all else fails, you can do it online here http://resizepic.com/

I take a screen print of the photo I want to upload, paste it into paint, use the "select" function (the dotted line box thing) to encompass the picture, cut, paste into a new paint screen, drag the white bit so that there isn't any gaps, save as .jpeg then upload...

On second thoughts, it may jut be easier to use the online picture resizer Bob said!

iPhoto has the simple option to export in any size you want.
Or you can do it in Preview but that rather assumes a proper computer in Apple green!!

One of the simplest options, not requiring the use of image editing software is to use Image Resizer, once installed it puts another option in the right click menu to bring up a size option window, it then loads a copy of the changed image size in your image folder.

Most digital images reduced to 1024 pixels or less in the .JPG format will be well below the 256Kb file size accepted by UKW server.
