Here's a Microsoft image resizing tool:

I've never used this tool but it looks to be straight forward.

I've used this one, it's pretty straight forward to: Flexxi-Batch Image resizer

I sometime just open the picture in "Microsoft paint" (most computers have it), it will give an option to resize them smaller and save them.
