The answer is simple: http://www.gdal.org/ is the best tool in my optinion.
It is a command line tool though.
The book "Mapping Hacks: Tips & Tools for Electronic Cartography"
(available used at Amazon for < 2$,
has good starting documentation.
Many tutorials should also be available online.
Basically to reduce size you want to run a command line like:
gdal_translate -outsize 50% [source.rasterfile] [target.tif]
where [source.rasterfile] is the location of any raster file you want to
reduce in size.
and [target.tif] is the name of a GeoTiff that will be created.
Also http://gis.stackexchange.com/ is a great place to find answers to
general GIS questions. I am also active there to help:
