File size converting RAW to jpeg?
9 months ago

I don't know what I am missing here but I have an 8MB file size RAW picture of a firework, so most of the screen is black. When I convert it straight to a jpeg with photoshop, no cropping, it goes down to a 1.5MB file size, why is there such a huge difference? I was wanting to use it for stock photography but 1.5MB is way, way too small.
