What is a Pixel?
The origins of the image files, whether slide or digital camera, can result in different cropping formats. (Example: a slide is a 8x12" format while a digital photo is a 8x10" format) This will be evident when viewing the thumbnails. As a result, the file sizes you purchase will not be all the same.
Also, depending on the graphic content of an image file, the byte size of the files will vary. By nature, JPEG compression means it will create a small file when an image has large areas of similar colour, while a shot of a forest, for example will be busy and create a larger file.
All images from film scans and digital cameras are saved in JPEG format. This is the most efficient means of storing and transmitting image files to you. Though the compressed size of a JPEG can be a tenth of its opened size, we take great care in applying only a slight amount of compression when saving. All files are saved at a high a quality level in Photoshop. XL files have the least compression for the best quality.
It is recommended that after downloading a file, you work on it in a non-lossy format, such as TIFF or Photoshop.PSD if you plan to do a lot of re saving.
Although JPEG's have many great qualities, too much compression or re saving will degrade the image. (Opening and closing a file without saving is different, it has no compounding effect.)
