With "size" you probably mean file size in megabytes or something like that?

Yes. To avoid testing with various quality to obtain the needed file size to be imported in forum.

#3 Updated by Tobias Ellinghaus 6 months ago

  • Affected Version changed from 2.2.5 to git master branch
  • Status changed from New to Triaged
  • % Done changed from 0 to 20
  • System changed from Windows to all

That would require some binary search by trying different quality settings and comparing resulting file sizes. If image resolution shall be changed, too, then it will be harder and slower, as several runs of the export pipe might be required.

So, it should be doable, but I am not sure if anyone will invest the time to write the code.

Just want to mention that I would love to see this feature implemented as well.
