Impose max size in bytes?

Post by Pgr »

Hi,

I'm batch converting images to PNG format, non-interlaced, 8-bit color, and I have a requirement that images must be under 65505 bytes (after compression). In case a size reduction is necessary, I would want a resize to occur.

Is there any way to do this in NConvert? Or some sort of workaround, if it is too complicated?

Thanks in advance.

Currently there is nothing to do that...

Thanks for your answer.

Maybe this could be a nice enhancement for the 'resize' option: resize to a certain byte size.

The size limit is for images included in eReader ebooks. I suppose other occasions occur where size limits are a requirement.
