Default Wanting to reduce the size of a png file

Ya'll need a graphics section.
At any rate I have this just massive png image sitting on a transparent background and want to scale it down to 500 x 150 and keep the transparent background. Irfanview doesn't keep the transparent background. So how do I do this?

GIMP can do it: GIMP - The GNU Image Manipulation Program
Also FastStone is a lot better than IrfanView in my opinion: FastStone Photo Resizer - Powerful Image Converter/Resizer

yea, GIMP is nice. You can also do Paint.NET. Great little alternative, or any online image editing site like this one: Photo editor online - Pixlr.com edit image
