In Lightroom there is a function in the export settings (Limit file size) but I do not find this option i Photoshop (in the export for web function). Instead I have to try different resize sizes to find one that meets the requirements.
In Photoshop, go to File>Export>Save for Web. In the popup menu select jpeg, then at the bottom of the popup menu you can select the pixel dimensions you want. At the top right of the menu you can select the jpeg quality you want. So, you can jigger those two parameters, pixel dimensions and quality, to get the file size you want. To get under 500kb you could use maximum quality and a long side dimension of 800, as Chris suggested, or you could do a larger pixel dimension, and select a lower quality. Either way depending on your preference.
Also, if you decide on some setting you think you would always want to use for photos here, you can save those as a preset in the same drop down menu.
