Hi everyone, I'm new here, I've got a problem here, I can't upload my photos because the .jpeg size is less than 17Mb, but when I turn the format into .tiff format, the size is more than 17Mb (You cn say it's arround 30-50 mb) but I can't upload it. Can you guys tell me and help me how to upload my photo? Thank you.

File size is irrelevant. Only image size counts. My jpegs are usually 4-6MB.

A 30MB tiff corresponds to an image size of about 10MP. The minimum is 6MP. Just export it as a jpeg without downsizing.

You need to look at the difference between MB and MP. I'm terrible at explaining it but if your image is at least 3000x2000 you are OK. If your camera is at least 6MP you are OK. I mix them up all the time. The file size of the jpeg will vary according to the content. It is the number of pixels that is important. Now I've probably just confused you but you'll get it after a while. Hope I got it right.

Actually IMO you explain it better than I. Mine is a bit technocratic.

File size relates to the size of the RAW image, not the JPEG.  As explained, JPEGs can have different sizes depending on what is in the image.  If you are PP in 8 bit, the size of your tiff should be the correct file size for the image.  I don't do tiff's myself, so someone can tell me if I am wrong here.

The size to look for is indeed that of an 8 bit TIF. (Or any other 8 bit lossless file like BMP.)

Raw sizes can differ greatly, depending on camera brand and content.

Just to elaborate slightly, megabytes measure how much memory an image takes up whereas megapixels measure the image length and width. As spacecadet said the minimum size is 6 megapixels, which translates into 3000 x 2000 pixels. Pixels are the dots of light that make up an image. If your image is this size or bigger it meets the requirements, regardless of the memory size.
