There are a number of ways :

1) Open the picture and save it as a JPG and than send
2) Download winzip here and install it
After installing you can by rightclicking choose for zip and email

Whether I zip it or not I allways would send JPG only

Another easy way to reduce picture size is the MS Powertoys Image Resizer. You can right click on an image file and select how you want it, then it automatically renames the copy it made.
