I need to resize a file full of photos to 200k each is there a way or an action that I can do that with. I have tried and there is a lot of data in some files and less on others and get no consistency. Thanks.

Resizing to meet a certain file size isn't a common task.

What dimensions are you resizing to? If they're web-viewable images, you should have no problem getting to 200 kb. Your photo editor may have a batch processor built-in. I personally use BreezeBrowser (www.breezesys.com) for "proofing" images.

Yes I need everything in that file smaller than 200kb and when I resized it as an action my "Web Proof" the files were quite random. I had to resize about 30% of the 500 in the file, not a big deal but I wanted to do that in one trip throught ps not 2 or 3.

So I ask again..."What dimensions are you resizing to?"

If they're web viewable (say 400x600 pixels), you should be able to set your JPG compression to 10 and you'll be just fine. Just run them through a batch process that resizes, sharpens, and saves. Shoot me a PM if you have questions about how this is done. I'll be happy to help.

I agree... this is not a common request. Visual mage size is the normal spec when resizing.

Assuming you are using Photoshop, I don't think you can include Save for Web in an action.

You can use Save for web in an action as I do it all the time. But when you record the action, if you make a change to the image size, it saves the pixel dimensions as a percentage. So I always resize first in the action, and then use the Save for Web to make the JPG and strip off the **** data and imbedded preview, etc.
Cheers,
rfs
