All of my pics from my India Tour have compressed after two hours of marking them. I had no idea this was happening. My 5mb photos are all now 2-3mb. I was about to start burning flashdrives for our trip participants, and now will need to do this another day (or week).

What happened?

Could someone please elucidate me as to how to get the EXACT image to photo mark, and not compress?

Thank-you so much!!!

Hi Scott,

This happens because you save your output images as JPG which is a lossy image format which means some data will be lost each time you re-save the image. No matter if you save with BatchPhoto or Photoshop or any other editor.

There are two solutions:
1. In Step 3 select the Output Format as JPG, click on Settings and adjust the Quality/Size slider to get an image size close to the originals;
2. Save your images in a lossless file format like PNG or TIF with much bigger file sizes.

Here is a blog post about image formats: ... r-the-job/
