I have specific requirements from someone whom I did headshots for.   They are stating that the picture requirement needs to be JPEG at least 3 megabytes, minimum of 1200 pixels wide and 667 pixels high.  I am lost on how to exactly format the photos.  I know where I can change megapixels but am stumped on the MB aspect.  Any help would be appreciated!!

Your dilema is tbe result of a lack of understanding by those requesting mb size.

size is pixels, ppi is just a tag in metadata and mb’s are determined by compression factor and subject data...

You can export the same pixel dimensions and have different mb’s by adjusting the compression/quality.

Subject matter affects compression so start at the highest quality and check the resulting size

Thank you . It is all so confusing to me . I did a newborn shoot but the dad wanted new headshots. They turned out great but he is requesting certain file sizes for his firm and I am hesitant to send off the re-formatted ones bc I am pretty much guessing. If the info says minimum requirements, I would think larger #'s would be okay but I'm not sure.

As Geoff said, the lack of knowledge of your client, as indicated by his instructions, is equal to your own. A 1200 x 667 pixels image is very small (0.8 MP), good for web posting and e-mail attachments, but not much else. Add to that the fact that every jpg is compressed somewhat, even one set for maximum quality, and I very much doubt it will be possible to get one at 3 MB.

 

>> If the info says minimum requirements, I would think larger #'s would be okay but I'm not sure.

Find out which parameter he considers more important. To get a 3 MB jpg you will need to downsize the image less.
