I have some
jpg images exported from
RAW files using UFRaw and they are very large in size(>15MB). So, in order to save space, I opened them in GIMP and re-exported as
tif images with
JPEG compression and the results were very good, file sizes reduced to about 5MB.
But since the
tif images were exported using GIMP, there were no exif data like
Date taken etc.
I, then, manually added some exif data, this is where things get weird, the file size increase about 5 times the untagged file.
Why is there such a huge increase in the file size?
Is there any way to add exif data without increasing the file size?
