One of your photo editing software packages should give you the option to resie your image. Resizing does not crop the image, but rather reduces the proportions so it at least looks smaller with much less memory.

For web, you may as well just limit the photo file sizes to a maximum of around 1,000 pixels wide and 800 pixels tall or thereabouts. Those dimensions will be more than enough to show on screen.

If you need software, Photoscape is a nice piece of software, and it's free.

Or the Microsoft Image Resizer is free if you use Windows XP.
