Just in case anyone else is wondering what app will do this.
I use a free program called paint.net as this allows you to adjusting the quality (and thus the file size) when you save the image.
This makes it easy to adjust to get a desired size.

I use paint on windows.

Put the pic on the page and then in the edit section you can reduce it down to the point where it shows you the size.

Or send it over to me via whatsapp.

When you have a photo saved in a windows folder if you have the folder options set to show you Large / Medium Icons you can then use the windows snipping tool to capture the Icon of the photo and this seem to be able perfect size for the 9kb limit.
