    I tried posting this in another group but no luck so far...

    Web sites usually have limits on the maximum file size that can be
    posted. Let's say it's 100 kB. So I'd like the file size to be as
    large as possible without going over 100 kB. I have an action in PS 7
    (on a Mac) that I use in batch mode. The batch is hands-off except
    when it gets to Save For Web. I find that I have to set the dialog
    toggle to "on" for that step since unless I manually go into the
    Optimize menu to bring up the Optimize To File Size window (which
    comes up with the default size of 100 kB) and click okay, it won't
    actually optimize the file size to 100 kB. When I recorded the action,
    I did all the steps including Optimize to File Size but it doesn't
    seem to record the file optimization as part of the action.

    Anyone know of a way to get the optimization to be done automatically?

    worked or not
