Export JPG: File Size remains big, no matter how low the compression is.

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I'm using Affinity Photo and Designer for exporting JPG.

My Problem is the File Size is too big, even with compression of 0%. 

 

Example: 

 

80% compression = 80,3 KB

0% compression = 66,2 KB

 

Why remains the File Size so big?

Could it be a bug?

(The problem is with Mac and Windows. I have tested it.)

 

See attached my examples.

Hi Flo,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

Click the More button on the bottom of the Export dialog and uncheck Embed Metadata to reduce to 48.9kb.

 

Thanks MEB,
 
but the File Size remains still too big. 
I attach the File Sizes from Photoshop CS6 for example.

Firstly the figures are for Quality not Compression

 

i.e.

 

80 Quality setting = 80,3 KB

 

0 Quality setting = 66,2 KB

 

But I agree they are too high for web design work compared to other programs such as "Save for web" in Photoshop

 

Which is why I export JPGs at 100 quality in AP then use the Photoshop function "Save for web" to get my final JPG file ( In this case 36K at a 60 quality setting )

 

An annoying extra step in my workflow but necessary if I want the smallest file size possible for the quality I need.

 

Hopefully AP will improve in this area later on in it's development


Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be worried about.

I agree with you to 100 %. 

That would be the best solution.

I agree the JPG engine is not well optimized. The quality setting is not as liner as it should be.
