  1. The minimum file size on Alamy is 17.5mb. I use a canon 5D mark III on the largest resolution possible - Raw (large) this creates file sizes of approximately 27mb. I then convert the images to JPEGS which compresses the image down to between 12-20mb (300dpi) (SRGB) with little loss in quality. The dimensions are kept at 5760 x 3840. I converted them to JPEGS at the highest resolution possible (100%). I use Lightroom 5. Is this the same work flow other people use? The issue I'm having is, using this process about half of the images I convert end up below the magical 17.5 mark.. Looking at other work on Alamy, photographers regularly are posting images around 50mb. How are they creating such large files? Any ideas welcome! Neil
