First you need a photo editor, like Photoshop, or a free one like Gimp which is excellent for a free program. Then you use the image size function, and make sure that you chose to "constrain proportions" this will assure that the width and height are maintained proportional, so if your pic was 1000 x 500 pixels it should be resized to something like 500 x 250 or 100 x 50, and so on. Good luck!
