Question: Aperture Photo Post-Edit Size Downgrade
Illustration of the problem:
I import into Aperture a 7.2 MB photo from my SD card and it's recorded in Aperture almost at the same size, 6.9 MB. Then I reduce photo exposure slightly. Aperture continues to report the photo "Info" at its 6.9 MB original size but "Get Info" sees it as 4.1 MB, same as Finder, and Toast 14 Titanium. What this suggests to me is that in the background, Aperture is holding onto the original photo info and reports it as such, but in the meantime, it has somehow seriously downgraded photo size, and every other application can see that the size is only 4.1 MB.
This size downgrade is disturbing because I am trying to burn a disc of edited photos on Toast and I want to do so at original size, not a watered down version. Can someone please explain this phenomenon to me and tell me how it can be fixed.
