21-28Mb sounds high for a JPG. What was the pixel size and complex is the image? (busy images obviously don't compress so well with JPG)
The image size is 2909x4364 pixel 240 pixel per inch, it is a portrait of father and son with trees blurred out in background, the original raw file size is 28 mb and when doing initial export size is 21 mb with the second export the size then reduced to 8,1 mb
Are you sure the initial export creates a JPG file?
8mb sounds about right for a JPG of the size and resolution and 28mb sounds about right for a RAW file that size.
Does it matter how big the file size is as long as the picture looks good?
