What camera do you have?

I used to use Capture NX-D (the free one from Nikon) amd the output JPEG file was 11-13 Megabytes

Now with Lightroom, I have max 7-8

Is this normal?

I set it as high quality 300 dpi and everything

With my 24MP D750, I usually save at 80% quality and get JPG files around 6MB in size. Bumping the quality up to maximum, the file goes to 15MB, which is the same size that I get in Photoshop at quality 12.

The DPI setting does nothing since it doesn't change the number of pixels in the image.

Are you telling Lightroom to lower the image resolution?
