    I don't use Irfan View, I use Adobe Lightroom to manage my photos. But perhaps @pbergonzi knows how to deal with this problem.

    Thanks @strafer.
    For starters, @OmarFPG, you are using a file path with invalid characters, i.e.--"?&." Try this--in your "downloads" folder, make a new folder called called "camera_temp" When you download from google photos, save your photos here in camera_temp. Make certain that they have ".jpg" extension before trying to open with irfanview.
    When you go to make different size, tell irfanview File->Save as->then a JPEG/GIF save options panel will open up->put quality 100%, put check for "save original exif data" and "save original iptc data" (and any other data that is already checked or that you want to check), put check in "Set file size" and enter 2048 for 2mb. If you still have Riot error after this, download the correct plugins (win32 if you're running win32 irfanview, or win64 for 64-bit) and put them into the irfanview/plugins folder. They must be unzipped if they download in a zip file, or you can use the plugin installer. If you want to run batch files instead of individually, irfanview has instructions on how to set the naming convention and the proper parameters for the save/resize (or in this case "set file size"). Let me know how it goes.

    Ty, nice catch about the odd icon in the path. Moving them away from that folder worked, now I see it's because the folder is named "OPX ♥" and IrfanView doesn't like this, lol.

    For the RIOT.dll issue, I tried downloading the RIOT as a stand alone, as a plugin, and as zipped .dlls, tried everything, nothing worked. :/ Thanks for trying to help though! :)

    I'll try this, I only tried the 64-bit version. I'll try it later on tonight and come back with results. Tyvm for all your help mate!

    Hi David,
    thank you for information.

    It's much, much better than before!
    But it is a relative answer - it's much better now, but not good enough, sorry.
    I think you are still not on the right way because the program reduces the pixel size, not information depth.
    I don't think you want a very small file size, much smaller than the 2MB which are allowed, because of your server capacity but to reduce forum users mobile data usage. But that's no reason to reduce pixel size.

    Last week I was on vacation in the Netherlands (and got ill from first day on, not funny).
    This photo I took at a beach bar, the original file is 3,764,918 bytes, the file I uploaded is 373,948 bytes big. Just 1/10 of original file - but no pixel loss!


    Now a detail from original file and compressed file (saved with JPG quality 100%).
    Do you see any differences? Which cut is from compressed photo? You can still see every detail, image quality is nearly the same. That's the reason why I want to push you to compress file size, not pixel size.

    I used a private app made by @hennes for image compression, you can't find it at google play store. It uses similar compression methods like JPG Image Size Reducer. Maybe you ask him for some hints?

    Picture quality of your provided sample is not on par with the quality of the OP3 / 3T ,OP2, OPX,OPO

    In my personal opinion it would be bad marketing to allow an official community app such a reducing in quality.
    i m using same app for compression as @strafer and this solution seems to bring good results. Please ask the coder himself about more details.

    On my opinion, if you don't want to compress images on our own as part of the forum app, and even if you consider about it, it is nevertheless incredibly important to integrate some intents to reach URIs from Apps who wants to share pictures.

    I think, the process is as follows:
    You make a nice picture and think, wow, I share the picture with a few people in the forum, so you send the photo either from the gallery to a compression app and after compression you send the pic to the forums app, or even directly into the forums app, if the forums app masters the compression.
    There are only URIs that you have to pass through, and if you are already an official forum app, you also know the upload parameters of the Flash tool of the website to forward the URI.

    All you need to do, add the two intent filters SEND and SEND_MULTIPLE to the app (Manifest), check the intents an put the incoming URIs into an array, if you want to make it quite nice, you take a listview and display a thumbnail of the image with the file name. By clicking on a button the image(s) will be uploaded.

    The compression of images is not trivial, there is much to consider, starts with a good compression, and thereby not to drain the battery, and nevertheless is fast enough, and it doesn't ends with that, that the app can handle large pictures, so to not fall into the memory trap (OOM). Large images means, file sizes larger than 20 MB.

    These are just my 2cents
