Default Picture resize 600x600 less than 240kb

Hi guys/girls,

Wondering could someone do me a favour.. I'm not that IT literate. I need to get my pic done for the US gov lottery and its doe in for dec 1st.

There are strict rules with the photo....

I've tried the diff pic resize websites bt it keeps getting rejected.

Any help please.

I could send my pic by email if needs be. I managed to crop to 600x600 bt cant get size down from 1.2mb

Thanks
Damien

open the image in irfanview (right click on image - choose Open with irfanview)

when it opens - click on Image in the top menu bar of irfanview/then Resize/Resample from the menu

set what options you want i.e. where it says Set New Size - obviously you set what size you want. Leave DPI at 72

save the resized image (File / Save As) as a jpeg and it should reduce it down to around 30 - 40 kb for a small 100x100 thumbnail...
