file size variations in Cs5, Bridge, & Mac when opening D800e raw files

Dec 11, 2012 1:32 PM

I am getting extreme variations in file size when I open my D800e nefs in photoshop cs5, & Bridge. When I highlight the same nefs on my Mac(10.6.8) & "get info", I get another file size.  D800e files are about 103 MB each at 8 bit, but can vary dramatically when I open them in Bridge or Cs5. Any ideas? Thanks!

    Hi. Because the forum you originally posted in is for beginners trying to learn the basics of Photoshop, I moved your question to the Photoshop General Discussion forum.

    Are these NEF's staight from camera?  Have you changed settings that would change file saved size?

    Where is file size being displayed in Photoshop? If you're reading the 'Document Size' then realize that's not a file size.

     

    Bridge displays file sizes in base-2 units.

     

    Finder displays file sizes in base-10 units, hence bigger numbers than in Bridge.

    Once you get the final save it and then make a jpeg copy.  It will compress the image a lot and can be universally opened by anyone.
