Why is Save as . . . resulting in extra large jpgs?

Feb 18, 2013 12:01 AM

Until recently when I saved a 1000px x 1000px file as a jpg at 10 in CS6 on a Mac with Snow Leopard, the resulting file would be about 600-700k. Now the same process results in at file twice that size, about 1.2-1.5 mb. I have tried everything I can think of to find the source and correction for this phenomenon. Save for the Web works normally.

Thanks for any suggestions.

    Did you embed the Color Profile?

    And do you have anything extra large in the metadata (like history logs)?

    Yes I do embed the color profile, srgb, just as I always have. And no I have very little in the metadata.

     

    A few days ago, I updated cs6 and then read that the update makes changes in files to accommodate the new retina displays from Apple, which I do not use (I have a NEC). My copy of cs5 behaves normally; it is only cs6 that creates larger jpg files. Perhaps I need to uninstall, reinstall, and not update?

    Thanks for your replies.

    No, you need to keep the bug fixes in the updates.

    But you do need to figure out what you changed in the JPEG settings, or in your file content, to grow the file.

    The exact same image?
