How would I create a preset to export files to a given file size? I need to be able to export a 2mb file for a realtor.

On the export dialog, set your image sizing (I set mine as you requested). enter image description here

Then click the add button in the bottom left hand corner of the dialog. enter image description here

Set its name enter image description here

And you are all set.

Thank you so much Patrick! – Zoe Sep 11 '13 at 18:29
Just above where you showed under File settings, you can limit the size to 2mb! – Unapiedra Sep 11 '13 at 18:29
Oops I meant to set do it that way. I will edit -- thanks – Patrick Hurley Sep 11 '13 at 18:30
I had to move the setting "limit file size to" 3000k – Zoe Sep 11 '13 at 18:52
..And also changed "resize to fit" to 3.0 megapixels to get a 2MB file! Not sure why the 2000k / 2.0 MB came out to 1.5MB file. – Zoe Sep 11 '13 at 18:57
