output files too small

I have the task of converting about 200 photos of 3+ MB size to a manageable 300 kb or so. Every conversion comes out as about 100 kb. This is even when I select [large] for output.'
Am I doing something wrong?

For starters your in the wrong forums, you should visit the PixConverter forums.

There is a great tool for free in the Coffeecup store that has an amazing image compressor it can be found here:

this is the pixconverter forum. And yes, it is great, However, I still have the problem. no matter what I specify these 200 photos come out with sub 100 kb. I would prefer higher quality, about 3-400. These are photos from my Coast Guard cutter reunion. Many cannot be replaced. All the photos were taken on film and are about 4000 kb. I can get about 200 kb with png files. Is there something inherent about jpg that does not allow saving at higher resolution? Or is this a limitation or design feature of pixconverter?

Cullen, yes you are in the correct forum now, because I moved this thread.

The Pix converter resizes and compresses the images. You cannot choose any specific file size as the end result, only the dimensions, quality and colour depth. Try your processing your images without resizing, at the highest colour count and output quality and see what you get. then you may start playing with the values to get the result as close as possible to your wanted result.
