Resize Size

Recommended Posts



Here is an analogy to think about that may ease your confusion.

If you take program and place it into a compressed archive such as a zip file, its Properties will show a reduced file size.
When the zip is uncompressed it is restored to original file size.

Try this:

Download this .jpg test pattern image onto your computer and then use Properties to examine its file size.

Now open the image in Windows Paint and save it as a .bmp file and check its Properties.
As a .jpg it is compressed to 41.9 kb, but as a decompressed .bmp it is now 8.48 MB.

Both the .jpg and the .bmp will yield a Color Count of 937 due to tints, tones, and shades created by the process of anti-aliasing.
