Re: Photo File Size - Before and After
I just updated to RC2 and installed all of the current bug updates.
An uploaded 40 KB image shows as Filesize: 39.66 KB on the showimage.php screen, but is really 167,878 byte in the linux file directory.
An uploaded 20KB image shows as Filesize: 19.64 KB on the showimage.php screen and is really 113,076 bytes in the linux file directory.
An uploaded 82KB image shows as Filesize: 62.09 KB on the show image.php screen, but is actually 239,034 byts in the file directory.
Internet Explorer Properties on the displayed image confirm the size shown in the server file directory.
At this rate, we will chew up file space pretty fast.
FOUND IT: It's the watermark, but the watermark is only a 1K image! The photos are .jpg as well as the watermark image.
What do we do about the inefficient file sizes while using a watermark?
