since this is a basic question thought I'd add a basic warning, make sure you export/save to a new file (different name or folder) so you don't overwrite your fullsize image. You might want the fullsize image for another purpose (eg printing)

Another tip...

After resizing your picture to a smaller size, it is good to apply a little sharpening to bring back some detail lost in the size reduction. Don't apply too much sharpening though or it will cause over-sharpening artifacts and make the photo look unnatural.

Take a look at this article for some pointers - I just came across it in a web search. It shows that sharpening (and other important adjustments) are in the "Adjust" window.
