[Solved] Recommendations for Saving DNG to JPEG with Small Filesize

Post by ArchiMark »

Hi,

Recently got a camera with 60MP sensor.....which is great, but.....DNG file sizes are typically 70 - 80MB......

Meanwhile, occasionally would like to share some photos with friends. So, need to send much smaller files, under 20MB...maybe anywhere from 1 - 12 (?) MB.

How do you recommend I do this and still maintain good quality image?

Any and all input is greatly appreciated.

Hi,

the latest GraphicConverter 12.1 can save i.e. as HEIC with 10 bit (works only onto Sonoma).

That will reduce the file size dramatically. Just compare the quality yourself.

Thank you for your suggestion, Thorsten. Greatly appreciate it!

Just tried it....

File went from 80.8MB down to 22MB.

Significant reduction but still a pretty large file to email someone

Hoping to get files for this purpose under 20MB.

Just scale down a bit or reduce the quality to get a smaller file.
