    Strange file size

    Level 7
      I have a bitmap in my cast. When I "put member (10).size I get 3455439 in
      the message window which tells me that the image is almost 3.5 MB. But my
      .dir is 1.5 MB. This cast member is not linked. I have saved and
      compacted. Does anyone understand this?

          The image has been compressed, like jpeg files are.
