Trying to resize two photos without compressing them so much that they are unviewable.

I need to upload two photos to a technical Q&A forum and each photo must be a jpg and no more than 19.07 MB and 1200 Width and 3600 Height.
The two photos are currently 3456 x 2592 (only 3 MB so all set there).
I have tried resizing them with Gimp
and the Gimp Liquid Rescale plugin
At 1200 Width the image has been compressed so much that it does not resemble what the original photos captured.
I tried changing the size from pixels to % but while it was less compressed it was still no good.
Can someone help me figure out how to resize the photos without compressing them to death?
