I don't want to debate if you are right or wrong;
Please take a look in Adoe Photoshop and you will see that these kind of calculations already exists, doesn't take long time do do, and is rather accurate!
Two different ways in Adobe;
One example is when you choose "Save As" and when you select the jpg option you can push a "slider" to get the desired file size, this does not take long, millisecond in my computer, and mine is not the fastest one:-)
Or you can, as I mentioned, using the "Save for Web & Devices" and then click in the right upper corner. You can then "Optimize for file size", choose how big you want the file size, click ok and save and it's done, the calculation takes no time either but it's boring doing this to a large amount of pictures.
So I know the function already exists, BUT, I'm looking for a program that can do it automatically in a batch, maybe some one written a "macro" to Adobe, anyone?
PLEASE be sure of that I'm NOT trying to be a wise guy or try to just be rude, but I cant understand why you're saying that this calculating would be so hard for the computer making it almost impossible in the real world when as I see it already exists and can be done, I just want a way to make it in a batch:-)
Oh, and ofcourse, when using these above two ways in Adobe to decide the output file size, it of course has to be reasonable changes, you cant go from 44M to 44kb, you CAN change the file size VERY much!
Thank you so much for taking you time!
