    My Raw file is going from 25MB to a 2.8MB jpg when saved from ACR?

      These are the settings used and no resizing has been done on the image just a few colour tweaks. I see there is a conversion from 16 bit to 8 bit too, which I don't understand? While I am very familiar with the arty side of Photoshop and ACR I am new to these technicalities so kindly explain. I do understand that there is a substantial drop in file size when converting to jpg and I understand the reasons why, but I just need to check that I am not inadvertently doing something to make that even worse.  I am wanting to eventually resize this image to print as A2 size hence the concerns.
