I was interested to know whether photos uploaded to iNat are reduced in size/quality and by how much. I’ve noticed that when you go into an image’s information (by clicking the ‘i’ icon on it), that it gives you are range of sizes:
Sizes * small
as seen here:
However, when I re-download these images, even the original, they are < 2mb in size. The original I uploaded was around 12 mb.
I guess I’m asking in case I ever need to re-download one of my images in decent quality, as many of my images I do not keep. Is there an ‘original original’ stored somewhere, or are they all reduced?
