I tried to post a photo to my gallery that had 3.9 mb. I got the message to "...adjust your file size..." Just how do I do that?

You will need a image editor such as Photoshop, Paintshop Pro etc..there are also free image editors out there such as TheGimp that you can use to lower the compression of your images. Image file size on Renderosity cannot be over 512 KB, and must be in .jpg or .gif format.
If you have Paintshop Pro, you would just save the image, and it will allow you to save at a certain compression level in the save options menu. A compression level of 10 gives very good results without much image quality loss.
In Photoshop, you would use the 'save for web' feature, and you can choose your image compression level there in the options as well.
