    The easiest way I can think of using a utility that everyone has - is to do it with MsPaint.

    If you're using Microsoft Windows - To open paint, goto your start menu, and type "paint" in the search/run box. Then open the image from there.
    You can also open it by finding your image and right-clicking on it, then clicking "open with.." and select Paint.

    Once you've opened it in paint press "ctrl+w"

    This should open a resize dialog.

    Set the size to pixels and resize accordingly.

    Use "Save-As" to save the new resized imaged without overwriting the original.

    Hmm - thought everyone had paint!

    You can try an online resizer like http://resizeimage.org/
