If you want to reduce the size in MS Paint, it's best to go Image > Stretch/Skew

then just 'stretch' vertical and horizontal by equal amounts (using any percentage under 100%, say 70% each time) until you're happy with it. Use edit undo if you shrink it too much.

Quite possibly the simplest application for windows;

http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/downloads/powertoys/xppowertoys.mspx

On that page, go down the right side and download "ImageResizer.exe" which will add a feature to XP which, if you right click on a photo/image file you can choose a size to re-size it to. You can do this to one or multiple files in one go.

Makes life SO much simpler.
