How do I reduce file size to upload?

I'm enjoying everyone's pictures but cannot upload my own because the files are too large. Can anyone explain how to reduce the file size? I'm trying to move them from the "my pictures" location on my PC and cannot find an option to resize.

I downloaded a free program, Irfanview. I click on my photo, then click on Images, resize, and put the width to 400, or 370 to make the other dimension less than 500.
Then I save the photo to my computer. This should work.

Thanks for the info. Thus far I have been unable to download the software. It is supposed to take 13 minutes and I have waited over 35. Mayhap I just need to give it more time.

I've been having the same problem. Just when I thought I could upload pics it isn't working!
