Default Help me resize

I am about 3 weeks into photography so please bear with me. I need to resize my 5mp pictures to some size smaller to post online in the forums. I have Adobe photoshop 7 and paint shop pro 7 as well as acsc 5.0. How do I resize with anyone of these programs (the easiest would be nice) and not loose picture quality? Thanks for your input.

In Photoshop do: Image > Size
In the drop down menu, you'll then be able to pick by pixels value or by picture dimensions.

In ACDSee do: Tool > Resize
In the drop down menu, you'll then be able to pick by pixels value or by %.

Default Save for Web

I use Photoshop Elements 2.0 and it has an option for "save for web" which seems to work fine and is easy. It doesn't alter the original, of course.

Here are some photos I did that way.

Within Photoshop Image > Size you'll have a resample box. Make sure that it's checked when you are wanting to re-size with the Internet in mind (it should be unchecked for printing).

Also, remember to only apply Unsharp Mask after you've resized. You can then Save for Web.
