Your options are to either decrease the image size, the image complexity, or to increase the image compression.

To play with image compression, try this. First of all, open your image and try save for web (File -> Save for Web). On the new screen select JPEG as your file type and open the little more arrow to the right of the presets drop down. From the list of commands that appear select 'Optimize to File Size' and enter your desired file size. Now click save and you're done!

Note that this may not give an acceptable looking image if the compression required to achieve your goals is too severe. If this is the case try shrinking the image dimensions first before saving for web.

If this still doesn't satisfy, you can try and decrease the image complexity. The simplest ways of doing this are to replace colour gradients with solid swaths of colour.

If you're willing to impart with a few dollars, I'd highly recommend the BoxTop ProJPEG plugin for Photoshop. Well worth it. The file sizes it outputs are often marginally smaller than what Photoshop can output. And you can select the target filesize, and let the plugin workout the quality.

Apathy. I'd care, but I don't.
