Looks like you're getting a lot of compression artifacts (the garbage around detailed lines). Do you know what level of JPEG compression you're using? You might try bumping it up a few notches (less compression) when you save. If it looks like that before you save it, but after your image editor resizes, it may be compressing the image in addition to resizing. Otherwise, there's no reason a resized image - to make it smaller - should have so much degredation.

See this thread: http://www.explorerforum.com/forums/showthread.php?threadid=51100 for examples of bad vs. ok compression levels.
