Yes, image content does indeed influence jpg file size.

Images with lots of sharp, busy detail (or noise) do not compress well, and will have a large file size.

Images with large flat, or smooth, or out of focus areas do compress well, and will have a small file size.

The difference in file size can be quite dramatic.

Yes, the content of the image has a huge impact. Some images can hardly be compressed at all, some can be compressed almost to nothing. It is not helpful to demand a standard size.

 

This is a very small file for a 6MP file. Are you sure they want this actual size in pixels? Or are you just reluctant to reduce the pixel count?
