Default Scaling down images

A lot of my pictures look fine on a full computer screen but the composition is not so great when its put on the rpics screen which is larger than the computer screen. What's a good way to scale it down so it is smaller than the standard rpics screen? Sorry if this is confusing. I only have microsoft photo editor and paint....Would reducing the size in paint by using the streching tool do the trick or does that just upload the image to a small resolution, further reducing composition? Thanks!!!

Make them 1024x768 (standard screen dimensions) if they don't fit.

Try this proggie, it's free, and I hear it's not bad. I can't give my opinion as I have Photoshop, but this should get the job done, too!

Thanks guys....I dug some of my pics rejected for bad cropping and had them accepted thanks to this. That IRfan viewer is great.

Looks like you already went with that advice, but I still need to second this recommendation. While I do adore Photoshop, Irfanview is great for simple things like resizing. It also starts up a lot faster.
