  1. How big was your file, Ruth? Since I also have a D850, I think I can guess hehe.

    I'm wondering if you're using Lightroom? If yes, it has a great export setting that I have enabled as a default. It's basically "max file size". So I set that to 14.9MB, then Lightroom figures out by how much to compress the photo's quality, whilst never growing beyond that size, and never reducing resolution. And no worries, it's only a tiny matter of compression it usually applies.

    1. Thanks Ferdy, I don't have Lightroom, but will check out my edit program's facilities if any. Posted 2 years ago
