How to specify file size on export/output to a file?

Post by kaliuzhkin »

I'm a newbie to Aftershot but have been using PaintShop Pro for ten years. I find Aftershot easy to use, but am stuck on output.

Most of my work is tabletop photography of products I'm listing on eBay. I had been using PSP with JPEG files, but have moved to Aftershot with RAW (Nikon NEF) files. My workflow is pretty much the same each time. I import and edit a RAW file and then output it to disk as a JPG file. I want the output file to have file size of about 750KB and can't figure out how to do this. The resizing choices Aftershot offers involve specifying the dimensions in pixels or specifying the amount of compression. That's not what I want! I want the size in KB.

So far, I've just been outputting the JPG file as whatever size Aftershot chooses, and then using PSP to resize it. There's gotta be a way to resize it in Aftershot!

Make an output batch with the size you want and in the location you want
