Hope you guys don't mind me asking such amateur question...
but how to make the size of the photo less than 2Mb?
The last time I uploaded it to facebook then download it again... but is there an easier way?

Bazalf,

Most editing programs allow you to resize the image and then save it as a JPG. Try resizing the image so the longest dimension is 700 - 1000 pixels. That should do it. If you let us know what specific program you use, we may be able to give you step by step instructions. Hope that helps.

Windows Live Photo Gallery...
Is that too basic?

Bazalf,

Just looked in Live Photo Gallery. I don't see a way to resize your images. However, if you have Microsoft Paint (usually comes with the system) you can do it there. In the version I have there is a tab labeled "Home". The second area has a resize button. Hope that helps.
