You can open it in just about any photo editing program and resize it. A good resolution in somewhere between 600 and 800 pixels wide. A picture of that size is detailed enough and will easily be under 80kb.

Photoshop is a great program, but a little much just for resizing. If I'm just resizing, I use simple programs that open and do their job quickly. I use ACDSEE, you can find it free at download.com

Here's a link.

If you have Photoshop use the 'Save for Web' option and choose a quality setting between 10 and 30. That way most pictures up to 1024x768 and definitely all 800x600 will become less than 80kb in size.
