This is probably a difference in jpeg compression settings. This is most likely adjustable in the software, possibly in the "save" dialog somewhere. You do know jpegs are compressed, yes?

A difference of ten per cent IMHO is not worth resetting.

If you can save in tiff (tif) or png, they are lossless encodings, and can be further edited in CSx or wherever.
