    Generally I just reduce the quality or increase compression. I don't think there is a spcific tool for setting the filesize.

    The size of an image depends on the number of pixels and lines, the depth (number of bits per pixel) and compression. You can play with these parameters so to meet your desired size. To change the size in GIMP you can go to: Image -> Scale image
