I was trying to save some pictures taken with 1D4 and 24-70 II in LR to small jpegs(600KB) and I got error saying it can not save that small, was wondering if anyone else experienced the same? Or it's just that I am doing something wrong.

Thanks for any pointers.

That does not make sense. I Export JPG's at 50K all of the time.

LR4? Are you using Export?

There is a setting box for minimum size by pixels, both horizontal & vertical. Perhaps you have a pixel width entered as 2, 3, 5, .1, etc. I know you can use sizes as small as 150x200 pixels, as I did that recently.

Some other setting though is not correct. There is also a "Pixels Per Inch" component of the pixel size, that defaults to 72. Or you can also specify as in or cm.

I tried the "Megapixels" setting size. that will not go below "1."


That is what you get for selling lenses for too much money! (joke.)

Interesting to see that it went to Western Michigan. I am near Ann arbor.

Best,
Michael

I suspect you have to reduce the dimensions to get such a small file size.

As Nikon taught us, bigger MP is better = More Money!

(or less ... D800 is less than 5D3 ... hmm ..36MP/22MP = $3,500/$3,000 = 3/2* $3,500 = $6,800 = 18MP 1DX is $6,800... 36/18 = 2*3,500 = $7,000..... bad math skills ... add, carry ... divide by zero error ...)

I iz an attiste, f* it!

Cheers!
