Help - I have a problem saving (m to k)  
I am using photo impact pro 11 and I am having a saving problem. All of my pics automatically go from mega bites to kila bites when I save. Doesn't matter what I do to the pic (crop, add filters, or do nothing) it reduces the size. I just opened a  2.5m pic and saved it under a new name (save as) and it saved it as 912k. I am guessing that it is a setting in the program, but I can't find it. Can anyone help?
Thanks, Chaz

When you do the save as are you changing the file type (like from .RAW or .TIF to JPG)? If so this would do it.

My camera is taking the pic as a JPEG and I am saving it as a JPEG. Well, I am not completely sure it takes it as jpeg, but once transffered to the desktop into a file, it is a jpeg. I am starting with the jpeg and ending with a jpeg and it still reduces.

It was doing the same thing to me, so I think sort of figured it out. When doing "save as" click on the options box this takes you into the optimization screen and then you can play with the settings from there. I was unable to get the saved size to match the original, but the default appears to be 90% of the original so you can change that to 100%.

I am using photo impact for several years, but lately I have encountered a problem. When I try to SAVE AS my files... the button becomes inactive when I change the location, or it doesn`t save it at all . Can anyone help me with this problem?
