Create Low Res PDF with File Size Validation

Post by Santhosh@82 » Sat Oct 03, 2020 3:27 pm

Hi,

I want to downsample 1000 number of High Res PDF files in to Low Res (150DPI) and i have a requirement to validate the Low Res output PDF file size. It should be below 10MB. Please let me know how do i validate the PDF file size after executed image downsample action in Pitstop server. Currently i have Enfocus 10 Server and 13 Server in our end. Please advise.

Thanks,
Santhosh

I can't think of any way you can do that with those versions of PitStop Server I am afraid.
You can do it with PitStop 2020 as that is now Switch based, and you could then route the files after PDF processing based on their file size.
That's the only way I can think of doing this as there isn't a specific size check in PitStop Server itself.

I'll try.
Firstly understand that this functionality is not in PitStop Server itself, it is in Switch Core which now ships with PitStop Server.
We are in a transition to make PitStop Server Switch based, so a lot of new workflow and variable functionality is now available.

With the Switch aspect you can define workflows, and part of this is file routing.
You have the ability to route on various things such as file name, and file type, but also on the characteristics of files.
In this case we are going to use the file size, so you would have two routes in the workflow, one for files -10mb, one for files +10mb.

Below is a screenshot of the variable you need for routing on the file size.
If you look at the documentation, you would need to route on 'Define Condition with Variables'.
