JPEG is a compressed format and so it should not be a problem to keep pics below 100k in size. Width of your pic should not exceed 800 pixels, and then it will be difficult to generate a JPEG wich is larger
You should use medium JPEG compression (around level 5), and everything will be fine. Personally, I am using Photoshop; if you are looking for a free solution you might consider this, wich is a rather poweful tool:

I too use PhotoShop. If you do any sort of raster image editing but can't justify PhotoShops cost, PhotoShop has to be the cost/benefit leader (even better than most of the freeware). If you are on a Mac, Graphic Converter is an excellent piece of Shareware.

I use ImageMagick. ImageMagick supports every known file format, works on nearly every platform, and costs nothing. I do:

$ convert -geometry 800 oldpicture newpicture.jpg
That makes a JPEG of quality 70% with width of 800 pixels. If the size is still too large I use lower quality.
