    Without saying what software, there's not much you can say about how quality settings impact IQ and size. If you use BDSizer, you can tell it to generate a JPEG with pre-set filesize as well as image size.
    Ciao, Joost

    All feedback is highly appreciated!

    Agree with Jev, tell us what software you use and you might get a step-by-step instruction. How to do it in photoshop is in our tutorials section, here

    Euhm... BDSizer is freeware, there is no "trial version" - you may use it forever without paying as much as a dime for it!

    Thanks heaps for starting this thread clm738 and thanks too Jev, for the link to BDSizer. That program is a bloody ripper!! Maybe, (If it hasn't already been done) this site could have a software review forum, possibly under 'Product Review - Software' ? Even a Freeware and a Payware section... just a thought

    That is a good idea Nick, I fully support that request. You could just PM the suggestion to Ricktas and see how he feels about that?

    Thank you very much for pointing out BDSizer jev.

    As a Nikon Capture NX user, when resizing a photo to the right dimensions for forum use I had to "guess" what file size would be generated by adjusting a quality percentage slider.

    My ancient copy of Photoshop goes one better in that it shows me the file size generated at the "quality level" applied.

    BDSizer on the other hand trumps them both by allowing an EXACT file size to be user generated, no "guessing" as Capture NX forces you to do and not putting up with Photoshop telling ME how many KBs I must have at a particular image size.

    The frames and easily inserted exif data will prove useful down the line for me as well.

    All round it has to be one of the best pieces of software I have seen for a while and as freeware it represents the "ultimate value" too.
