Exporting causes file size to diminish Greatly
I'm not too much of a beginner and haven't had any big issues I wasn't able to figure out myself with help of forums. But I cant' figure this out for the life of me. I'm gonna lay out everything I do step by step.. Just cause this doesn't make sense.
Open photo that's 12.5 MB
Open as Layer my second photo that's 7.26MB
At the bottom it confirms the size of my project. Makes sense.
Export.. As pdf.
Final file size is 488 KB

HOW. How and why does it do that.

How do I export to the same large file?
