I open the picture with Paint (yep, good 'ole paint). With the picutre open, go to Image > Stretch/Skew. This will pull up a little box.
In the top sections (Titled Stretch) you have a horizontal option and a vertical option. Change them both somewhere between 20% - 40% for both the horiz. and vertical. The smaller then number, the more the picture will be reduced.
Then just save your pic and you're good to go.
Note: When you save, you can change the format from .gif to .jpg if you want to make a smaller file.
This might sound complicated, but it's actually really easy. Do it once and you'll completely understand.
Inversly, you could just open the pic with paint, then re-save it as a .jpg file and use the program the OP posted about.
