I am trying to reduce the file size of an image uploaded to no more than 200 kb. It does not appear to be working as I can upload larger files. This is what I have:

if($this->canAttach()) {
         $fileUploadField = new FileField("Attachment", "Attach File (files must be less than 200 kb in size)");
         $f_validator = new Upload_Validator();
         $f_validator->setAllowedExtensions(array('pdf','png','jpg')); // set your extensions here
         $f_validator->setAllowedMaxFileSize( array('*' => 204800) );
         $fileUploadField->setValidator($f_validator);
         $fields->push(
            $fileUploadField
         );
      }

and this....

if($this->canAttach()) {
         $fileUploadField = new FileField("Attachment", "Attach File");
         $f_validator = new Upload_Validator();
         $f_validator->setAllowedExtensions(array('pdf','png','jpg')); // set your extensions here
         $f_validator->setAllowedMaxFileSize( array('*' => 204800) );
         $fileUploadField->setValidator($f_validator);
         $fields->insertBefore($fileUploadField, 'CurrentAttachments');
      }

Where am I going wrong?
Thanks for your help.
