So, my problem is this: I am compressing .jpg images using ACDSee Pro 10, the images reduce successfully, and I have them replace the original image. The images are reduced by about 60%. Now, after compressing the images, I move them to a network drive where the original images are located, I tried a few methods, The first method I tried was simply moving all the compressed images on to the network drive(drag and drop) and select replace all, after doing so it does successfully replace the images, HOWEVER it is taking up MORE space on the drive than before the images were compressed! I have also tried compressing the images directly on the network drive and the end result is the same, I also tried deleting the originals first then dropping the compressed images in, alas I am left with the same result, more space on the drive is taken up than before compression of the images. Does anyone have a clue as to why this is happening?
I didn’t find the right solution from the internet.
