Bug Report: not saving limited file size
« on: November 04, 2016, 02:06:52 AM »
Hi Support
I have a 15MB image and want to save it to another folder limiting the file size to 2 MB for certain purposes.
PM saves the image but size is increased instead of limited to my input size.

I am in Sikkim at a monastery and need to make urgently a slideshow for the monks.
what can we do ?

Photo Mechanic Version 5.0, build 17719 (c8049ca)

best regards
Giancarlo Cattaneo

The quality slider takes precedence in this case and defines the lowest quality you still think ok. You have it set to 100% making it virtually impossible for PM to create files of your limit. Slide the quality to e.g. 0 and PM will be able to make your files 2MB  :)
