Can someone explain how to get the highest (least crappy) image quality on export and why they are different?I tried this with the same photo (Raw edit from external camera):1. Save to camera roll, small = 0,9mb jpg 2048x15382. Save to camera roll, max available = 4,7 mb jpg 4592x34483. Download from shared web gallery = 3,7 mb jpg 4592x3448This is confusing. Which alternative gives the highest quality? Is there a reason the web gallery downloads are more compressed(?)Also (I dont know much about these things) but notice that the exif says ”Uncalibrated” on all of the exported jpgs, not ”sRGB” as a straight from camera jpg does, is this right?

Hi, I would like to leverage on this post on export quality if you don't mind. I've also noticed that exports from Lightroom CC Desktop tends to generate a larger file, ~2x size larger than Lightroom Mobile CC (IOS) at max available setting. Is Lightroom CC Desktop generating higher quality images vs the mobile version at max settings?

Seconded, I’m seeing this as well and it’s concerning.

I am confused aswell, which format should we use to loose the least quality?
