There's a much easier way in Photoshop to designate file size to whatever size you want. Use Save for Web and click on the little down arrow to the right of the Preset dropdown, choose Optimize to File Size, and enter the desired size. No guesswork that way.

*or do it like Gene shows in the above post. :)

I must have missed this one, thanks it also definitely seems like another easy way to do it. I will be using this method and the other one in light room depending where I edit, thank you!



Cheers,
Nora

The big advantage for me in saving as D Thompson and I described Tony is that the file size can be much closer to the required size if there is a max file size requirment. By saving for web, the metadata can also be minimized or removed to gain additional file size when needed.

Yeah, like I said, I forgot about the Save for Web function, since I rarely used it and in recent years pretty much just Export out of Lightroom, it has the max filesize bit easily available!

"Save for Web" does give you a smaller file size at the cost of removing the EXIF data unless they've changed the way it operates. This means that you don't have any © info in the image + you're going to have some problems posting images here when we go to the new software.

I don't recall when it changed, but you have several options now when using "Save for Web", at least with CS6. They are: None; Copyright; Copyright & Contact Info; All Except Camera Info; All.

Is this going to be a problem posting images with no exif? or posting images to this site at all?

When you post an image you'll need to know the settings to enter them with the image.
People should keep it in the image anyway as often someone posts an image with a question & we have to ask them what the settings were, so it will speed answers.
