v5 Limit File Size To?
« on: July 05, 2012, 06:56:54 PM »
First off, love the new looks of v5

I know this was discussed in a previous post and it was being looked at but while testing the v5 Beta, I don't see this feature.

A lot of wire services require the images being transmitted not exceed a certain file size (i.e. 1mb). What would be useful is to select multiple images in the contact sheet (after key wording and captioning), click upload and be able to select a "Limit File Size To" option that would allow all the images to be uploaded and not one file would exceed the set max file size. If that makes sense.

Thanks!

The feature is only available in the Save As dialog at this time.  By the time we ship, the feature will be available in all areas of Photo Mechanic that generate JPEGs.

Thank Kirk,

Hopefully it will be added as a ftp/upload feature.

I want to modify my post ingest workflow to:

caption/keyword >from contact sheet edit in PS (.nef files into adobe camera raw), save images (back to contact sheet), then bulk upload using the "limit file size as" feature.

Either way, love your product and use it for all my MLB, NFL, NCAA and MLS assignments. Keep up the good work!

It will absolutely be added to the Uploaders, including FTP.
