First of all, anything greater than 72 dpi just makes the picture
bigger on the screen. Virtually all computer monitors are 72 dpi.
Then decide what size in inches by inches you want the image to appear
on the screen.
So that gives you your basic file size. The only other way to make the
files size smaller is the compression ration you choose when you save
the file as a JPEG. Of course the greater the compression, the lower
the quality of the picture. But more often than not, you can't really
tell the difference. You don't want to try and use the same file for
any print work.
Photoshop has a great facility called "Save For Web". It automatically
converts files to 72 dpi and allows you to try several different
compression ratios and will display the compressed file size for you.
Most other programs don't give you the file size until you save it and
check for yourself.
