Hi all, I'm not new to photography, but I'm new to trying to make it more professional. Part of it is trying out stock websites. Since money is an issue I can't afford the highest end programs yet and am working with PE6 and iPhoto right now. Most stock photo sites ask (rightly so!) for at least 3MB pictures, and most also ask for their pictures in a JPEG format. The thing is, altough when I save a RAW file in JPEG (max quality) it becomes even bulkier... When I edit it in PE6 and save it, even in the biggest possible JPEG option (5x progressive included!), it shrinks to about half the RAW size!!! I don't get it?! So a file that would be heavy enough (altough I agree not in the best out there), say 5.8MB, would shrink to 2.7MB! And one that is probably not one of the best, but enough for me to at least try to sell, at 3.4MB, will shrink to just over 1MB!!! How come it shrinks like that in PE6? Is there something I can do? Thanks!
