Re: Photo size

Sandra is very correct, more detail results in larger files, all else
being the same. It has to do with the fact that jpg pictures are a form
of file compression. The less details,and variations, the more there is
duplicated information and the more the file can be compressed.
Thus clump shots and shots of fine details are Inherently larger as
less compression is possible.

Agree resolution is key, but if your photo has less
variation you lose less at same resolution.

eg. both are 800 x 600 one 92.3 kb and one 3 kb - same resolution.


p.s. couldn't resist. This list has over 500 members and less than 5%
post on a regular basis, wouldn't like to see someone stop posting
because one of the other 475 some odd complain about the file size.
