What do you mean by "trim down size"? Compression? Or scaling a
(for e.g.) 200x200 image to a 100x100 one?
If the former, you might try SAVE/PNG, but I'm not sure what level
of compression REBOL is using. If the latter, you can do that
using the ASPECT effect, then converting the face to an image and
saving it; however, you don't get the same level of quality you
would get with most tools out there that do the same thing.
AFAIK ImageMagik is a package of command line tools to manipulate
images; if that is what you are referring to, I think it does not
require any advanced knowledge using it: you just call the
appropriate tool and it reads your image and saves it back after
