    Hi i exported a file as a jpeg full size from aperture and it was 3.2MB, when i export that same file (but the master) and change to jpeg in photoshop the file is 8.2MB (these are canon 5Dm2 files 20MB original. why is there such a discrepency and why is aperture throwing away so much data. I have preferences in Aperture set to export Jpeg original size, but that doesn't seem to be full size any idea whats happening? thanks Chris:confused:

    Hey Chris,

    Found your question while searching for the same answer and I figured it out. There are three things you can customize using the edit tab to influence file sizes . 1) quality . 2) dpi. 3) export size . If the export size is set for 4x6 image size or a small number of total pixels you will have significantly smaller files. Configurable parameters are more detailed than Iphoto, which I have been using. Hope it solves your problem.
