I want to use Nconvert to resize some of my .JPG files , when i use the code :
nconvert -out jpeg -ratio -rflag orient -resize 50% 50% *.jpg, it works fine but if i do this, the file size might still not be at my desired filesize , is there an input parameter that allows me to choose desired file size?

You can use the -q option to set the JPEG compression used, but as far as I know without checking the help file I don't think that there is an option to set a target filesize, although that is supported I think using the GUI software XnView MP or Classic...
