In your program when you choose to "save for the web" as a GIF, there should be an option to "optimize", which will allow you to type in 15 kb in the little window that opens in order to keep the GIF size down. If the GIF comes out too grainy, you may have to delete some layers.

Saving as a JPeg or PNG will always be way too large for even a static avatar. Always save as a GIF, even for a static avatar. To choose "save for the web" the option should be under the save options. Another page will open where the avatar can be saved.
