PNG is the wrong choice if you need small files - PNG uses lossless
compression, so converting your JPGs to PNG will increase the file
sizes quite a bit.

For example:

Your original 1024x768 JPG was 98635 bytes. Scaled to 512x384 and saved
as PNG, it was 272249 bytes.

I imagine you'll get similar results for all your images.
