    simple question about cropping an image

      If I may, I'd like to know the answer to this.  For my own edification....


      I have an image that is 16 x 24 inches.  It has a certain file size.


      When I crop the image with the cropping tool, and set the tool to 16 inches wide by 24 inches high, the image file size increases significantly.


      Is this what is called "resampling?"  The setting in the image size is set for Bicubic (for smooth gradients).


      As an example, I saved the file (from a RAW conversion to jpg), and it was 14 Mb.  When I cropped it, it jumped to 19 Mb.


      Just curious.
