    Megapixels refers to a camera’s sensor, I think what you meant was the photo’s size, in DPI or resolution.

    What photo editing software are you using? If you’re using Photoshop, it’s a snap.

    The quickest and easiest way is to choose “Save for web” and where it says “Quality” drag the slider down to say, 50 or so. You can see in the lower left how much smaller the file becomes when you move the slider.

    If you want to fine tune it, go to Image->Image -Size and make your adjustments. For anything viewed on a monitor, you don’t really need your resolution to be much larger than 72 pixels per inch. Go to the box that says resolution, and type 72 in there, or 150. This will change width and height of your image in pixels but you can go back and change those.

    For example, I just opened an image that is 2070 pixels by 1744 pixels, at a resolution of 180. If I type 72 into the Resolution box, immediately my photo becomes 828×698 pixels. If I think that’s too small I can adjust the width and height after I adjust the resolution.
