Question: How do I reduce the size of a photo in Photos

How do I reduce the size of a photo in Photos so it will upload to Facebook? I keep getting the message that the file is too big. I tried emailing it to myself as a smaller photo, but then when it exports to Photos, it's the same size as the original.

macbook, Mac OS X (10.4.11)
