Here's what I do. If you have Windows, it should come with Paint already loaded onto it.
-email the photo to yourself, you should be able to do this on an Ipod since it's via wifi, not phone service. Email it to your own email. So type in the same email address as the one you are sending it from, or any other email address you have and wanna use. I use hotmail and gmail, idk how other's do it.
==There's a possibility when you send the picture, you can select large, med, small or actual size before it sends. Medium you won't need to do anything other than just download and then upload here.
-open the message after you get the email and download the photo to your computer. When it's done downloading it should pop up in the image viewer. Right click the image in the image viewer and click "open in paint". It'll open up Microsoft Paint with the picture. Click the resize button and in the resize space you can put in the % you want it scaled down, Regardless of what box you type it in, it'll automatically enter the same thing into the other box.
==If you did the large,med,small,actual size thing from above and hit medium, do the same thing to download it and open in paint, but instead of resizing, just click save as, and put it where you want with whatever name you want. It'll be the right size to upload if done that way, the iPone5s has this option so idk if the other products do.
-Now try uploading. If it still is too big, make it even smaller doing the same thing. Eventually it'll be a size that fits. From all of the mobile devices I've ever used, I always resize by 50%, then I click it again and do another 75%. This is usually a good size.
So, this is just the way I happen to know, there may be other ways, in fact I'm sure there are, I just don't have any photoshop or any other image altering program. I'm pretty sure there are some sites that resize too, but I don't know them.
