Anyone else notice this? After I edit a shot in Nokia Creative Studio, no matter how little, it just about doubles the size of the file. Any good reason for that? Makes no sense to me, as no photo straight off the phone is even close to as big as these edited files. At this rate I think I would rather not do this to every file as it will take up more space on SkyDrive and make navigating photos much slower when I want to show photos to someone over the cloud.

I'm only seeing about a 60KB increase in image size when I add filters and only a 30KB increase when I adjust color balance and clarity. I imagine if you did a lot of editing it would increase the file size a bit more. Not sure about doubling but you will see a slight increase.
Most of the edits in Creative Studio (or any other photo editing software) will increase the file size simply because they are adding to the image.

I move the clarity bar to halfway between the center and the right (so it's at about 75% of the full bar). Then I touch the vibrance up just the slightest bit to give a bit more warmth. That bumped the file size from 2.91 to 5.46 on one of mine. So, not double but close.

Images are nothing but 0's and 1's. The more you edit, the more 0's and 1's there are. That means the image has more information.
More information (editing) = more size.
simple as that.

I do encounter this as well ...ie having the file size increase, up to 6MB..
what i would like to check is the range of file size for the pictures that are taken by Nokia 920 using formats in 3352 x 2000 / 2448 x 3264.
I'm getting average file size of 2-3MB ....
Is that the normal picture file size or are you able to capture image files with higher MB ... just a curious thought.....
