How to reduce nytimes .mobi files?

Hi I'm using a calibre to download nytimes recipes for pw3 on linux, but usually the .mobi size very large, exceeds 25MB limit from gmail.

Are there any ways to reduce the file size (do not download images for examples?)

Modify the recipe. Change useHighResImages and compress_news_images_auto_size as needed.

This worked for me

Edit the recipe, and make sure
useHighResImages = False

Delete the "compress_news_images_auto_size" parameter and replace with "compress_news_images_max_size = 50".

This will ensure that all images are 50kb or less, which is perfectly acceptable for viewing on a Kindle. This makes even the Sunday papers fast on a Kindle (today's was around 11mb).

I use a modified NYT recipe on Sundays that sets recursions=0. This eliminates downloading all the past articles linked to in today's articles, and brings my MOBI file down below the 50GB limit for emailing.

Thanks for the tip. Do you know where to get the nytimes_sub.recipe from calibre? I only found a file on github but date October 2015 which is somehow outdated?

I don't know about nytimes_sub.recipe.

I started with the standard NYT recipe (Fetch news, Add custom news source, Customize builtin recipe, New York Times [en]. I edited the recursions= line (currently line 17) and also the line (140) that says title='New York Times' so that it reads title="New York Times (no recursion)' to avoid confusion between the edited recipe and the original. Then Save.

Your edited recipe then appears in Fetch news, Schedule news download, under "Custom", where you can schedule it for Sundays.

Yeah that's what I mean. I guess I have to use calibre desktop on Windows. I ask the file path cause I usually fetch news by using my linux vps. .

//Update: The file size is incredibly reduced. Thank you so much!
