Hi gang!

 

The iPhoto Export function is a strange beast. I'm having difficulty exporting files out of iPhoto without iPhoto altering them. 

 

For example, I have a pic that is 4.9 MB.  If I use iPhoto's Export function, and select JPEG Quality = Maximum and Size=Full Size, then the resulting file is 12.2 MB.  If I select JPEG Quality = High, then I get a 4.4 MB file.  Obviously iPhoto is generating a new file that is different from the source file.  Is there any way to get iPhoto to simply Export the original file without alteration?

 

Cheers!
