OS X :: How To Get File Sizes

Jul 5, 2010

If I drag the mouse over a bunch of files in Finder (to select them) and then click get "File...Get Info", I get a bunch of info windows pop up all over my screen, one window for each file!

What I normally want to do is, like in Windows, see the totals for all selected files selected in ONE window, but I don't see how to do this.

Software :: Changes In File Sizes?

Jan 24, 2010

I'm running 10.4 with Photoshop 8. When I open a jpeg that comes from my camera which is usually between 2.5 - 3.0 MB and then 'save as' without doing anything to it, it is reduced to about 750Kb. I am saving as Jpeg and using the maximum quality (12).

What's happening?

OS X :: Reduce File Sizes For .doc - .pdf - .txt?

Aug 8, 2007

I already know about reducing file size through print pdf, but from my experience this has not done too much to actually reduce the size. I was wondering if there is any other way to do this that is similarly easy and free? More importantly, how about the ability to reduce a word document or text edit without converting the file into a pdf? I have massive word files and would really like to reduce the size they take up, but really do not want to lose the ability work in the document

Mac Pro :: SSD - Is There Way Around The Low Performance For Small File Sizes

Oct 26, 2010

Just got an SSD recently and it's extremely fast for big files (reads in the 240mB/sec range and an obvious improvement running the machine).But I also do work that uses a huge number of very small files, and I was surprised to find that the read performance is so much lower in that case. The 4k benchmark was actually slower than my old hard drive (about 40mB/sec), and loading up a project is also a little slower off of SSD versus HD. The files I'm loading are typically in the 60k range which should be better performance than 4k (and I would think better than HD, but that's not what I'm seeing on my machine). Looking at some SSD benchmarks online (on PC), 64k is still down from the max speed but not much, about 180.

Applications :: Using IDVD File Sizes?

Apr 14, 2009

Whenever I try to write an .avi (or .mov) movie with iDVd onto DVD, it says: 'content reach maximum duration, pls remove some content' for movies over 700MB. That's without adding chapter markers etc...

I've tried using MPeg Streamclip and Prism to convert them to smaller sizes, but without any luck, they just come out bigger.

Software :: How To See File Sizes And Locations?

Nov 26, 2009

Specific example of a very common general scenario: I'm searching for an instruction manual on my computer.
I have a lot of product brochures and one manual from the same company, all with similar names. No idea which is the manual, but I do know that when I run a Spotlight search, the manual will be the one with the large file size.

Except for some inexplicable reason, Spotlight won't show you the file sizes of all the results! This is absolutely bizarre OS behavior. I have to Get Info of each one, which is laborious. And it's hard to compare them, as you have to match each Info window with each file name back in the Spotlight results.

This process is next to impossible when trying to compare a very large number of documents or video clips, etc.

Similar usability issue when you need to easily and quickly compare where a bunch of files you've searched for are all located. Can't do it on a Mac. (This is sadly one of those areas where Windows has long been easier and simpler than Mac.)

I understand the $39 "Path Finder" application can add these functions, but it introduces other limitations that matter to me. So, is there ANY way to sort by size and location in OSX (10.6.2)?

Software :: How To Display Real File Sizes

Feb 27, 2010

I work a lot with video, DVD's, etc. This work relies heavily upon the long-time, established standard when it comes to file sizes; that is, that noble of all numbers, 1024.

Sadly, it appears that some computer makers, hard drive manufacturers, and even some ISP's, no longer have respect for the decades-old standard of 1024, upon which the computer industry was built. Thus, to earn a higher profit, and to pretend to offer more than they really are, they have chosen to use 1000, instead of 1024, as their unit of measurement. It makes Internet speeds appear faster than they really are; it makes hard drives seem bigger than they really are; etc. To me, it is plain old greed and deception.

For someone involved with video, where accurate measurements are required, this modern usage of 1000 presents a problem.

Thus, I am looking for a program which will allow me to display REAL file sizes in the Finder -- which relies upon 1024k/Kb, 1024Kb/Mb, 1024Mb/Gb, etc. -- rather than the more modern approach of 1000 units/whatever.

I was hoping that a program like MacPilot, or a similar app, might possess this tweaking feature, but I have been unable to find one to date.

The only thing that I can do for now is to use a program like MediaInfo, which is a halfway point, because I actually want ALL of my files on my hard drives to display the file size based upon 1024, and NOT upon 1000.

Applications :: ITunes Video File Sizes?

Nov 5, 2009

I tried a quick MRoogle on this one, no luck for what I was looking for. I'm trying to figure out why iTunes video sizes are so ginormous...

I recently got addicted to the show Chuck, so I bought the 2nd season on iTunes...

Now, I've downloaded tv shows from other... ummm.. sources before, and it typically is about 375MB for an hour long show (45 mins really..)

But iTunes, I'm running into standard def video in the 600mb for the same length of time.

Is this due to iTunes encoding or something? I mean, granted the store seems to pipe out the downloads pretty quickly, but its still a pain to wait for a longer download than if I'd obtained these through questionable methods.

MacBook Pro :: Won't Change Partition Sizes

Nov 25, 2007

I had that problem with the hal.dll file while trying to install windows XP on my mac. So I had to follow this guide and make the partition 32 gigs for windows, which I find about 10 gigs too big for my needs.

Does anybody know if it's possible to change the partition size? I heard leopard could do it, but disk utility doesn't seem to let me do it. I formatted windows in NTFS, so maybe that's why.

OS X :: How Can I Make Volumes Exact Sizes

Jan 16, 2009

How can I make volumes exact sizes? I've noticed that when changing the size of my partitions with Disk Utility, the size of the partition actually ends up being .12GB smaller than what I set it to be. So if I type 300.00 in, the partition ends up being 299.88. If I type 300.12 in, it ends up being 299.88. If I type 300.13 in, it ends up being 300.01. If I type 360.12 in, it ends up showing 360.00 in Disk Utility, but on the desktop when I have show item info turned on it says 359.99GB.

OS X :: Saving Window Positions And Sizes?

Dec 9, 2009

I work with different resolution monitors at work and home. 22" 1920x1200 at work and 30" 2560x1600 at home. The problem is that OSX tends to throw the windows out of place on the 30" (connected via mini-DP to Displayport cable on my MBP 13") or resizes them to the 1280x800 size of the internal monitor after waking from sleep when connecting the 30" display at home.

Is there any program that would save and restore the window positions and sizes so I wouldn't have to rearrange them all the time?

Hardware :: Window Sizes And Positions For Different Resolutions?

May 17, 2009

I just bought a 24" ACD, and I love it. However, because my MacBook Pro is only 1440x900 resolution, if I resize anything it'll go out of proportion on my MacBook Pro screen.

Ideally, if there was such a program, I'd love to be able to have my windows set a size and position for 1900x1200 resolution, and for them to have a different size and revert to that when I use my MacBook Pro's 1440x900 display.

Does that make sense? I just don't think I can be bothered having to resize Safari, drag any windows that were over on the right hand side of the 24" display back over on my MacBook Pro display just to see them when I unplug the 24".

I'm sure it wouldn't be too hard to make an application that does something like that - just take note of the window positions and sizes for both resolutions and switch between them when the resolution is changed.

Applications :: Combining PDFs - Pages Come Out All Different Sizes?

Jan 11, 2010

I've got some PDFs I'm trying to compile into one single PDF file. I'm using an automator script which is working well, except for the fact that the resultant PDF's page sizes are all over the place � some are huge whereas others are pretty tiny...

Is there something I'm missing here? Is there a way to combine PDFs and not have the pages sizes turn out weird? The PDFs are from different sources (some have been scanned at various resolutions, some are word documents that were printed to PDF from within OS X) so that could be the reason, but I'm just looking for a solution atm.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Printing To Different Printers And Paper Sizes?

May 25, 2012

I have Lion 10.7.4

I have Parralels 7 and run AutoCAD in Parrallels 

I have a HP Deskject 9800 (USB connected) and an HP Laser Jet Pro CM1415fmw color MFP (wifi connected) all accessable from my MAcBookPro 

Printing is a hassle from Autocad with my MAC OS. In WinXP, (prior to switching to MAC) I could assign a paper size to each printer in printer set up. Then when printing from AutoCAD I would just select the print I wanted for the paper size and done..... perfect! 

However, in Mac with Parrallels AutoCAD does not really talk correctly through to the printers on the Mac side. So I have to go into Lion printer settings and change the paper size all the time between tabloid and US letter. I always forget and waste a lot of paper. 

Looking for a way to set a Lion OS printer to a specific paper size and have it maintain that paper size while a different printer has a differenet paper size, but this doesn't seem possible. 

Every time I change the paper size in the Lion OS for one printer it changes it for all printers.

Software :: Editing Default Paper Sizes / Print Settings

Jul 25, 2003

Is it possible to select a default printer/print size that is not in the default print size list that OSX offers for "Any Printers" or in the Print Center.

Its just we're trying to run a kiosk on a touch screen iMac that needs to produce a receipt from a small receipt printer that doesn't use a standard print size.

So therefore I need to have OSX set to print to this non-standard size every time it boots up.

Are there any pref files I need to change? Or can I do this through the GUI?
