Good morning everyone,

I just found out something very strange in the file size of a converted file.

The NEF file size from my D800 is about 70mb. If I convert this file in Capture NX2 to JPEG, the size comes down to about 15mb. But in Aperture it's around 30mb.

Can someone tell me why ??

I haven't check with Lightroom yet.

Thank you,
