    Hi,
    I need a program who can convert png to jpg, but not just as an extension, but the quality too.
    If a Png file weights 300kb i need to make it to 100kb after making it jpg.(approximately, but don't base on the kb)

    Try Paint.NET or GIMP. Save as, then select compression/quality level until it reaches the desired size.

    Besides Paint.net you can also try out Irfanview which includes a quality setting (in percentage) for all kind of formats, but also includes a batch conversion feature that can be very handy if you want to convert a lot of pictures/photos in png format to jpg format.

    Photoshop save for web. Imagemagick if you are looking for something on the command line

    Depending on the image you might not get anywhere close to 1/3 the size while keeping the same quality as the original png.

    Yes, but it doesn't let you adjust the jpg compression. GIMP is probably the best bet for something easy to use and fully featured for free.
    +1: Yeah, depending on the image you might not squeeze that much out of it without loosing some serious quality or at very least some quality.

    Yes, but I didn't say it doesn't adjust it. I said it doesn't let you adjust it. :)

    I want a program to select like 1000 photos and convert them immediately not one by one, is this irfan view or paint.net enough to do this?

    I tried newtekie technique used in the link and it worked far better than I was expecting.
    With 100% quality, the .png files, which were a total of 1.03GB, went down to 593MB in .jpg
    Thanks for all replies!

    Downloaded. Humm, wonder if getting it from CNET would have been better. There are about three screens that ask to install other things that are not needed for the program. Just pick customize and un-check those. Read each screen to opt out and only install. Actually avoid this method from this site ... http://pixresizer.en.softonic.com :slap:

    OK, only CNET and the authors site have the file as an individual install. :)http://bluefive.pair.com/pixresizer.htm - good site.

    OK, tested this nice program out. It works great! Does what the thread poster is totally looking for with ease. CNET rated well too.

    It's about the images in my website's reviews.
    They open ~1000% faster now, since when I converted the cropped images,
    went from 388MB to 35.2MB..... love it!
