You need to use a photo editing program to reduce the image size. Try The GIMP, which is both powerful and free. Very similar to Photoshop. It has a scaling function that will allow you to reduce a picture to that 100x100 size with just a few clicks and keystrokes.

Download it HERE.

Open the photo with "Paint".

It comes on every computer.

Go to the pull down menu at the top of the page and click on the pull down that says "Image".

Click on the item that says "Stretch?/Skew..." or Ctl+W.

The menu window will show at the upper half "Stretch Horizontal... and Vertical.

Reduce the picture by an equal amount in Horizontal and Vertical say 70%.

The click on "Save As", name it and

Bob's your uncle.

Upload the photo to photobucket. When the photo displays, there will be four choices underneath it. Choose the fourth one, copy that code, then paste it into the dialog box here.
