That's not a very efficient way to do it. Normally you'd use a graphics program (like Photopaint or Fireworks) to do this on your local machine.

You could try uploading a picture to your a gallery you create here (using MyControls) then right clicking and saving the resulting resized images. There's a limit on the size of file you can upload though - somewhere around 2MB I think. You can make a gallery private or say which members you want to share it with. Plenty of free photo sharing sites on the web too, but beware of ones which charge to download full size images, you could find your own photos held to ransom if you mislay the originals.

Also remember that a smaller file size and a smaller displayed size are not necessarily the same thing. You may want one the other or both.

Encoded email attachments are a very inefficient way of sending data. If you've got more than a handful of photos, a slowish connection, or do this regularly look at peer to peer (P2P) file transfer programs.

best way is to use a photo editing program like photoshop or corel paint shop pro or something similar ( there's loads of free versions on the net) then adjust the resolution and size to 800 X 600 at 72 dpi and save it as a gif or png.

here's a good free one

simply use the resize option
