You can try adjusting the 'quality' keyword argument of the save() 
method to save space.
   im = Image.open('original.jpg')
   im.save('other.jpg', quality=50)
I don't know of a way to hit your 15KB target in a single shot, but 
would try various quality settings until your size target is achieved.
