Topic: Thumbs & Images filesize much too large (picassa export)

Hello
I'm using the Picasa plugin to export images into a readymade SimpleViewer gallery (works like a dream!!). I'm using version 1.8 and am using the new "TEST" version of Picasa

However, my thumbnails are as big as 30kb even though 5kb would be fine. My main images are up to 100kb even though 30kb would be fine. I have set Picasa to ouput at 640px wide. So it isn't that. I need Picasa to compress the images more than it is currently doing. Is there a way?

The only workaround I've found is to compress the images with some other software and THEN export them to SimpleViewer using Picasa. But this is tedious so I need a better method.

thanks
mark

Try using Porta to create your galleries: http://www.stegmann.dk/mikkel/porta/

I don't like the output of Porta, although the filesizes were better.
Perhaps I could use the resulting images creating by porta and then use them to create the SimpleViewer gallery. That could be a good workaround I suppose.
