Open the pic in paint.
click image
click resize/skew
set both % values equally start with 80% and see what the image as saves kb wise

Use microsoft picture manager - most pc/laptops come with the cutdown Microsoft office, In the Microsoft folder go to the Microsoft Tools and then start the picture manager. You can edit pics and compress them to fit various document types - Document, email, websites. It gives you the final file size before you compress it. The just save to a location of your choice in JPeg format
