    Hey guys

    can someone help me with a quick question.

    I have a jpeg which is 8mb. If i export it as original size, but on quality level 10, it reduces the file size to 5.9mb. If i make the quality level 11, the file size is 7mb. And if i increase it to the maximum 12, the file size is 14.

    This seems a bit confusing as i just want to export the original file. What setting do i need to keep the jpeg the same quality level - without compressing it further and losing detail?

    Hopefully one of the learned experts here will know the answer

    cheers

    Sorry by same quality - i mean same size as original - i.e. 8mb.

    To export the original file, right-click on it and choose Export > Master.
