I have transferred full size photos from nikon dslr to ipad both through itunes synch (I think this process "optimizes" the photos and reduces their size) and also through various apps that transfer full resolution photos wirelessly from pc to ipad.  I have not purchased the camera connection kit because I think this issue may still exist.


Issue:  Following transfer of full size photos (for example a 4928 x 3264 4.2 mb 16.1 mp), when it is opened in iOS iPhoto, the size is about half, but pixel number remains the same.


I'm not shooting RAW, these are jpegs. Why the loss???


What causes the huge drop in photo size, but apparently keeping the same number of pixels. It makes no sense.


Thanks in advance.

iPad 2, iOS 6.0.1
