Posting rules: It shouldn't need saying, but... play nice. Please keep your discussions civil. You can disagree, just don't be disagreeable. And, of course, all of the usual stuff like no spamming. Tex adds: I'll be rigorously enforcing this as we go along. We're probably going to be a small community in a little lifeboat, so we can't have members at each others' throats. This is for the sake of the project as a whole. So when you post, pretend you're speaking in person with your very wealthy auntie who has always treated you wonderfully and currently lists you prominently in her will. I won't be tossing anyone out of the forums because we are all in this together (except spammers: immediate membership cancelation), but I'll delete suspect posts right away.

having worked on jpg and then saving them they change insize from 4MB to something like 200KB. Do I need to set a prefix or something?

Thank you for hints and comments why/how this happens and how to avoid it


Saved vs. converted



I bet you chose save from the file menu, or Done from the edit window. This only saves the recipe with preview, hence it is rather small.


You need to choose Convert (Convert button in Browse mode, or File - Convert image in Edit mode), so LZ converts your file by applying the edits you made and creates a new file (or overwrites the old one).

Grrrr -that is exactly what I

Grrrr -that is exactly what I did. Whish I would have noted earlier. Learning by doing.....
