Lightroom CC: using jpg pictures --> after using "save in" ... "full size" the result picture is less then the original. So the quality is not the same. original = 8,4 MB (see info Lightroom cc) result after saving = 5,4 mb. Please change this bug. Thanks

Megabytes don't mean much in case of JPEG, because of compression efficiency. For example: a noisy image does not compress well. If Lightroom CC applies a little noise reduction (which would actually increase the quality of the image), then it could save out this file as a smaller JPEG and still have the same (or better because of the noise reduction) quality.
