I understand that Preview's "save-as" feature has changed -- now you must duplicate the image first, then save it.


However, when I save a duplicate (which is similar to the old "save-as" feature), I need to have the "Quality" slider linked to a feature that estimates the file size of the image I am saving.


Thhis was a function built right into the old Preview.


How can I enable it in the new Preview?


In other words, how can get Preview to estimate the file size (in KB) of the image I am saving when I slide the "Quality" slider?


Thanks for any help.
