          In the Export dialog select jpg as the file format and set a Quality number that will produce the file size you need. More quality means a bigger file, a lower Quality setting compresses the image data more and makes the file smaller. The amount of compression done at any given setting is also influenced by the amount of detail and/or noise in the image.

           

          Or you can tick the Limit File Size To: box and type in 3000 K and LR will pick the needed Quality setting.
