    photomerge creates huge dng files

    elfelm

      LR classic 8 (2019) - when I'm done with a project I convert to lossy dng for archiving.  files are usually around 14MB.

      If I used LR to produce a [photomerge] - [hdr] the file becomes average 165MB.  Attempts to convert this .dng to lossy .dng do not result in any file size savings.  

      A .tif with zip compression is better at 40MB (export using LR) - but requires a few more steps.

      and export as a high jpeg the size is about 15MB as expected.

       

      Is there a way to get the convert to dng process to work as expected ?
