reducing photos to use in church newsletter

Old problem forgetful memory… I have received several photos from our pastor of a Vacation Bible School group and I want to insert several in the church newsletter I do using Word.  They are several several meg each and I need to reduce them way down so I can insert them and not have a newsletter to large for many folks to open or to send out.  Have Google and Picasa available.

Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated,  I have saved them to a folder on laptop.

The key is to use the Export command to send the pictures to their special folder.  There is an option on the Export screen to choose what size (in pixels) you want.  1024 should be good.

Here are a couple of Videos on the topic:
