Try resizing it somewhere. A good (and free) viewer such as Irfan View can resave a picture with a set target size (open the picture in it, then File->Save as, then select Jpeg). To the left of the save dialog, there will be Jpeg quality dialog, where you can set target size to, say, 1.4mb, and it will figure out other save parameters.

Another option - upload it to a site that automatically resizes the image for you, like Flickr, Photobucket, Zenfolio, etc. Then just post the link here.

You can upload the original files to Flickr if you want; it generates a bunch of resized versions for your automatically. If you have a Pro account on Flickr, then you and others people will be able to access the original version too, but if you have a free account, the original version is kept locked up until you buy a Pro account.

Personally, my originals are PEF, so I can't upload them to Flickr even if for some reaosn I wanted to. But I batch generate 1200x1800 pixel "proofs" of any images I want to share, and those are what I upload to Flickr. So if I ever upgrade to a Pro account, it's those 1200x1800 versions that will get unlocked and show up as my "originals".
