Image size problem within attachment

I cannot believe that I have another problem with such an easy ssue as re-sizing an image within CS4 for e-mail purposes.

The recipent requires a low res image of 72dpi, approx 8" x 6" and saved as a jpg to give a file size of 200-400k.

When I resize an image to such standard, the file size is shown as 666k.
Once I 'save as' then attach to an e-mail, the file size suddenly becomes 91K.
Can someone please explain to me how that can happen?

Thanks

The 666k you see is the expanded file size and the jpeg compression is giving you the 91k. You can increase the quality setting which will give less compression (larger number) and hence a larger file size.
Or if you are at the maximum quality already the size is a reflection of the data and that is what you have!! (that means that it easily compressed image data).

Once again, thank you Geoff for your response.

In order to eventually send the e-mail, I did actually increase the file size just as you detail, and that left me with a jpeg file size of 150k. Right or wrong, I sent the message and it appears to have worked as I haven't received a request to up the size even further.

Regards

Howard
