An 800*600px image saved as JPEG with moderate compression can generally easily fit the file size limit here at RetouchPRO (100KB) and still retain adequate quality for the purposes of this forum.
I use JPEG Cleaner (for Mac) to resize JPG files to any required file size: http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/20711

There are probably similar Windows apps here:

Here's a JPG I reduced to precisely 100KB:

I only half blurred and desaturated the background. Tighter crop, degrunge and adjusting skin color got to my take, below.

I'm not really sure what you want, but this is something different than is already displayed here.
