[Solved] Converted files filesize

Post by Gninneh » Fri Jan 11, 2019 11:30 am

I'm using a batch on some images:
IF filesize is bigger than 2048 kb
then scale long edge to 1920 pixels

that means that any image smaller should just be included and resaved in the destination folder.

But I notice that the files not resized in pixels are becoming larger than the original filesize.

What can I do to avoid this? I want to run this batch on folders with a lot of images, and want to include all files, rescaled or not, to avoid manual labour.

Please e-mail a source file and your batch to support@lemkesoft.de

Which quality did you select for the JPEG format?

I received the batch and sample files by direct e-mail.

The solution:
1. Disable the saving with Resource fork in the prefs part save / resource fork.
2. The source JPEG quality of the CMYK JPEGs is around 80. Set the quality to 80 in the save options.
