Reducing/compressing images after taking

I have read thru the manual and another terrific K20D ebook I bought, and can't figure out if there's a way to reduce the quality (image size) of my pictures after I have taken them. i am having a problem uploading my images to a real estate site, which is kicking the images back as too big. (I shot in the highest quality image.)
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You'll want to change the resolution for the web shots- something around 800-1000 pixels wide is typical for 'large' web images.

Just about any photo editor will let you resize an image (look under the Edit menu.)

Google's Picasa is free, as is FastStone.

I will give FastStone another vote of confidence. It is a free download and not only with it squish your files to any size you want, but current versions have some pretty fun editing tools. I will often take my (pictures) files, maybe do a few edits with Picasa, resize them to 50% for faster uploading to flickr or Facebook and then post the most horrible of the images here using flickr links.

I use Picasa and it is quite easy. I upload all my pictures from Picasa simply because it is so easy. As soon as you click on export, a box pops up which gives you the compression options. Can't get any easier than that.
