Image Size

Hi All,

My manger has asked me to provide her some landscape photos but she said it has be to bigger that 30mb. But I have noticed that my K-S2 have only gone up 25mb in size. Is there anything I can do?

If you shoot DNG it will usually give you a larger file than the the JPEG, but you may be left with some minor post-processing. You may want to make sure you are shooting at the highest quality image setting also.

Ask for resolution. MB on disk after compression is likely not what they're looking for.
A 30MB file is likely about a 12Mpixel image, very roughly.

At 24bits per pixel -- where 24 bits == 8bits color for each of R, G, B.
i.e. 3 bytes * 12Mp == 36MB.

Yes, I do have them set to raw. They typically comes to around 25MB in files size. I personally don't think it matter how big the file is as long a the printer can print it that big.
