A must-read for Lightroom users

Thank you for pointing out a very interesting article. I am one of those who has been blindly exporting at the highest quality setting but I'll be doing some tests of my own after reading that - looks like I could save a substantial amount of disk space :smile:

I did a little testing myself tonight and will almost certainly not be using the 100 quality setting for web sized JPGs from now on.

Here's a quick example, photograph chosen for its combination of detail in the foreground and smooth sky:

JPG quality: 100; file size = 1.2Mb
Subscribe to see EXIF info for this image (if available)


JPG quality: 68; file size = 295Kb
Subscribe to see EXIF info for this image (if available)


I don't know about you, but at this size I can't see any difference, except in the file size!
