How to make pictures best for websites

Hi.
I'm using Gimp2 to edit my pictures. I try to save them with less of a file size, under 20kb so that the pictures don't take forever to load on peoples pc's, but when I lower the quality in jpg format the picture starts to look very poor.
Some pictures I take with my 9 mega pix camera, I lower the pix to 2, but when editing the pics look poor.
If I cut and paste from the net, it is still the same problem.
Is there a way to keep a decent picture with less file size (under 20KB) ??

Yes it can be done, as my example shows.

I have no experience of Gimp, and if it can make the necessary changes to the original picture still retaining the quality. 50Kb will download almost instantly.

The are quite a number of free storage sites for pictures.
