why the size of an image change so drastically?

Recommended Posts

I scan a document with Scannable and upload it to Evernote has image (jpg)

I see in EN that the file size is 84 kB.

Then I edit the image using the annotation tools only to cut off a portion of the image, which then becomes smaller.
After saving, the file size is 384 kB, ie more than four times higher!!!

Can someone explain why this happens? Any solution?

This is a known issue that has been reported many times, but Evernote has failed to fix.


Since you are on a Mac, you lots of other great options to work on images:

  • Mac Preview app  (lots of little known features)
  • SnagIT   (my fav, free trial available)

Thanks for the reply, JM

I searched the forum, but apparently not sufficiently.



I try with preview, I only trim the image, and now from 84kB change to 250 kB. !!

So, may be it is not an Evernote problem
