help - I must be missing something in scaling pictures to smaller size

I have just started using my z750 camera and have been trying to scale down the pictures I take so they are sufficiently small to use as email attachments. The size I have been using on the z750 is 2560 x 1920, which seems to come out to 1.6Mb when the picture is imported into my Powerbook. I have been trying to reduce the size of the pictures to less than 100Kb for use as attachments. I have been using Graphic Converter to do the reduction, but the effect I get on the reduced picture is very blocky looking. I have had other people send me pictures which are about 70Kb and I haven't seen this blocky effect. Is there something I am missing in trying to reduce the size of the picture without getting these artifacts? Thanks.
