Well not sure how to do this.... the only command used was a watermark 
using text and no background at 20% size otherwise all default values 
and I renamed them and stored them in the same folder (album). The input 
images were standard jpegs from my Pentax K500 and the saved files were 
also jpegs. I looked for compression settings on the batch queue manager 
but cold not find any. Comparing the images afterwards showed the 
renamed ones at about 1.8 or 1.9MB but the same pixel resolution as the 
originals which seems to me that somewhere a compression setting of less 
than 100% was used but as I say I cannot find anywhere how to set this 
for jpegs in the batch queue manager.

I cant send images that size to a mailing list.
