Yes, there is...If you're using Windows XP, click here:
find the "image resizer", download and install it.
when its done, you'll be able to "right-click" on any jpg image, and "resize picture" will be an option in the context menu. When you click that, a menu will open, giving you a bunch of options. Choose 640x480 or 1024x768 for the image size, and hit the go button, and it'll make a copy that is a fraction of the size of the original. then you can use the small versions for uploading and e-mailing.
