Resizing Pictures: No Fun

Are we still futzing around with photo programs that are not so obvious, which still make sizing and resizing pictures a little tricky? I'm not interested in wasting time with programs designed for designers or those which require a degree from RISD. Isn't it high time that we made it very very easy to work with pix on the web? Maybe it's easy for you, but it's still not easy ENOUGH for the Average Joe or Jane.

Here's my picture, taken by the wonderful photographer Alison Shireffs. I don't know what size it is, or was, or if it will fit. I think Picassa just fits it in here magically, which is great. So at least in Blogger we have a solution, but that's not the case in all applications with pix, is it?
