As of late, I've been downloading images off of my digital camera with iPhoto. One thing I notice is that the images brought into iPhoto are much smaller in size than when downloading them through Photoshop. A typical jpeg with quality of 12 is generally 3.5 megs in Photoshop but only about 600 k in iPhoto. Am I getting lower quality images by going through iPhoto? Maybe I should download them into Photoshop and then import them into iPhoto? Any suggestions?

I'm new to iPhoto as I have just recently bought a digital camera. I'm guessing that in i Photo, it may be showing you the size of the jpeg file size where Photoshop would be showing you the image size uncompressed. someone correct me if I'm wrong.

Are you sure you are checking the proper image size in iPhoto? It creates a thumbnail, & an origional of each image. Sorry, I'm not on my machine right now to check for specifics.

I just checked into my iPhot Library and see the two folders- thumbnails and originals. The originals are a bigger file size than the picture info states in the iPhoto window when viewing the image.
