    camera raw reducing image size

    Jill Orr Level 1

      All of a sudden Camera Raw is automatically reducing my image sizes. I cannot figure out why. The images were shot with a Nikon 5100 if that has any value.

      The original jpg size is 15MB (jpg) and have a NEF extension.


      I've tried opening the image in Photoshop and then going through Bridge to Camera Raw, and opening the image through Bridge to Photoshop and the image gets reduced from 16 inches to 5 inches keeping 300 dpi.

      Thanks in advance.!

          The only important “image size” is pixel dimensions.


          JPGs have a JPG extension.  An NEF extension means it’s a raw file.


          Things that affect DPI/PPI and pixel dimensions are in the workflow options link at the bottom of the main ACR window, and only if you output the images to some other format in ACR.
