Thanks for your input on this,
Based on what you posted you think the adjusted (smaller in file size) photo
is still nice, right? It seems like with this photo it is easier to get
good compression because the file has much of the same color throughout the
entire scene. This would mean less data is needed when compressed. If you
were to test this with a photo with more colors you would not see such a
file size reduction.
I guess it comes down to your happiness with photo appearance. If it still
looks good and it saves some space then it is good, right? If you don't
want to have that much compression you can go to the File menu and choose
"Revert to Original (CTRL + R)" and the original file will be restored. We
will consider an option to change the jpeg compression in the future.
