What is File Size and what does PhotoFileSizer
Today's digital cameras and scanners are capable of producing
photographs and images in beautiful high resolutions of 8 megapixels
and more. That's great for printing beautiful high fidelity photos on
paper but when you want to email that photo (or use it in a PowerPoint
presentation) you realize that this high resolution comes with a price:
Every picture or photo is stored in a storage unit called a file. One
of the most important attributes of a file is size
File size is expressed in bytes, kilobytes (KB) or megabytes
(MB). The larger the picture is (width and height) or the
more pixels it has, the larger the file. The higher the picture quality
is, the larger the file. A typical photo from a modern digital camera
can exceed 5 megabytes, even when stored in JPG format.
Sending multiple such files via Email (or including them in a
PowerPoint presentation) becomes frustratingly slow, to the point of
being impractical. There are three principal ways to reduce a picture's
- Resizing the width and height, while keeping the original
- Lowering the photo's quality to an acceptable
level, while keeping the original width and height.
- Doing both (1) and ( 2).
solves the file size problem for you
by implementing method (2).
- Upon invocation, PhotoFileSizer initially
asks you to select the file you
want to resize (note: it will never resize or
overwrite the original file).
- Once you selected the file, it will prompt you for the
desired file size, initially suggesting a file size that is 1/4 of the
original file size. You can change that to any size you want.
- Then you are prompted with a confirmation page, displaying
the name of your selected file and its target maximum
size. Because smaller JPEG files usually result in greater degradation
of the picture quality, you may need to re-run PhotoFileSize, with a
Please note the following important features and functional behavior:
- PhotoFileSizer attempts to provide the best
picture quality within a file size that is smaller than the
maximum file size you specified.
- If the requested size cannot be achieved at 10%
picture quality, PhotoFileSizer will stop
compressing at a file
size closest to 10%.
- If picture quality is not satisfactory at the desired file
size, this means you must resize the width and height of the picture in
order to achieve the desired file size.
- Typically (where target file size is
achievable), the resulting file size will be smaller
than the maximum number you entered.
