Is it possible to simply state a desired image file size, e.g: 500k, 1 meg, 3meg, etc., that would set height and width automatically?

In which application?

Also, file size has only loose relation to the image size -- file sizes include overhead of the file format, metadata, plus compression of the image data. So the exact file size is very difficult to predict from the actual image size.

Yeah, it's a bit like putting a lump of cookie dough on a cooking sheet and telling it to be four inches in diameter.

When saving for JPEG, you get an estimate on the final file size when choosing the compression quality. Also, you can use the Save For Web function to get estimates as well.
