Can someone please help me. I imported a picture to light room and the file size was 5.19 MB once I was done editing and went to export the picture the file size is now 81.8 KB. what do I need to do to get my edited picture to go back to back to the original file size?
What were your export settings?
Presumably, you exported as jpg, which uses lossy compression to reduce file size.
Besides, the file size of a jpg depends mainly on two things - the quality setting and image content.
Please post a screenshot of your export settings, showing File settings and Image sizing.
You can also post the exported image, if you like.
Thank you for trying to help, my husband actually figured it out for me. He said my settings were wrong. Thank you
