frankbiganski Posted October 7, 2022 Share Posted October 7, 2022 Hi, I recently began shooting nighttime skyline RAW images, but I noticed that I'm lucky if my final edited JPG image is more than 17 MB. The nighttime RAW image will be about 35-40MB, with the exported LR image at 13-14 MB, and then the final edited image at around 14-18 MB in size. I tried exporting from Lightroom to PS as original, DNG, TIFF, and JPG, but I'm still dealing with Photoshop automatically discarding about 60% of the image information. I understand that less light and color equals "smaller" images, but does anyone have any secrets they're willing to disclose to preserve image size when saving to JPG (over the current "Baseline Optimized" and "Image Options" settings). Frank P.S. I completely understand and appreciate why Alamy is so discriminating with submitted images. Today is Friday Oct 7 and take a look at the featured image on Bing.com. It's a great shot by the photographer, but look at the grain that was accepted by Getty! And I've noticed this level of acceptance coming from Getty in the past as well.
