Mogrify help with resize

hi there!

I am having some trouble with resize of an image.

this is the command i am using:

mogrify -resize 64x64 -gravity center -background white -extent 64x64! -colorspace RGB MK1910103000_1.jpg

The original size is 2.5MB
When i resize the image it is 1.8MB ..

I want it to be 22Kb or something like that, if i put the commande:
-quality 50 doesnt give any results. the file size stays 1.8MB

Does somewone have a great idea?

Kind regards,

Thijs W.
