Just a very quick one, as a lot of sites but data limits on their sites. What file size would you recommend as a minimum so as to make the images worthy of displaying

Sorry I didn't make this overly clear. I blame the time I have recently set up my own web site. So as such the only limiting factors are those applied by the host surrounding data allowance, rather than the limits applied by epz
File sizes of JPEGs will vary wildly depending on the content of the picture. A photo with lots of fine detail, such as a landscape, will not compress to as small a size as a portrait, or any photo with large areas of single tone. You might expect a 600-800 pixel file to be something in the region of 100 - 200 KB, whereas if you wanted to produce real screen-fillers of over 1000 pixels the expected size would increase accordingly. Some folk keep file sizes and image dimensions deliberately modest to deter image theft.
Back in the day when we all had slow internet connections it was wise to keep JPEGs as compressed as possible, and I guess that still applies to some extent—you don't want anyone to have to wait for your photos to load (internet patience is pretty short-lived in most people).
