John I use Irfanview. It's easy and it's free.

Hi John
I've also heard Irfanview is very good.
I use Paintshop but it's an expensive option if you just need to resize.

This program looks interesting too but I haven't tried it:

The link will let you download it

PhotoFiltre is a complete image editing and effects package, that will not only amaze you with features but also the fact that it is free (for personal use). It comes with many features that rival some commercial packages, as well as additional add-on that can be downloaded from the web site. PhotoFiltre offers all the standard editing features (selection, clone brush, paint brush etc.) as well as a large selection of image effects, photo masks, image adjustments, thumbnail browser and much more. The program also supports batch processing to apply filters, sizing, adjustments and transformations to a large number of images at once. PhotoFiltre comes with modern, well designed interface and is well suited for everything from simple resizing to advanced photo editing.

Good luck with whatever you choose.

Both programs mentioned above are excellent....however, Irfanview is the niftiest program going.....I use it everyday for quick little jobs....if you want to resize a .gif using Irfanview (this is a non animated .gif):

Open Irfanview & open the .gif......
Click Image, Resize/Resample & give your image a larger or smaller width, if Preserve Aspect is checked, it will take care of the Okay....& save your newly resized .gif....

Hope this helps,
