OK, I am bit confused over something I never thought I would be.

I have a Canon 30D shooting in RAW mode yielding approx 8mb files.

I import them into Lightroom as .dng's, process the images and then export them at 100% jpeg in order to upload to an agency that has a minimal requirement of 3mb jpeg files.

The resulting files are coming up too small!, like 2-2.8mb's

I cannot figure out how to make them any larger in Lightroom and it is hard to image that a 30D is incapable of taking an image that is large enough to be used as stock.

Thanks for any and all support.

Henry

You are confusing megabytes with megapixels.

perhaps you're mixing up mb (megabytes) with mp (megapixels)? i presume your canon 30d is a 8 megapixel camera and you're trying to fulfill some stock agency's requirements for at least 3 megapixel images? in that case, replace mb with mp, and you're good to go.

^^  Absolutely.  Images from the 30D are plenty big enough for any micro site.

Thanks, I understand that I was indeed confusing the two.

Thanks
