Hi Chris,

From 0.5 to 0.1 is very strange with BMP. BMP are generally non compressed and Envision does not compress with RLE, so the size should not change. Are you using some external compression when storing in your database?

Also, this could be normal with JPG, because every time you save a JPG, it is compressed again, losing some information details.

Best regards,
