If I open a photo in "Edit Photos" and "save as", without editing or changing anything, the photo

changes from e.g 4000 KB to 1200 KB. Why this big change and how can I avoid it?
Thank You

What are you going to do with the Photo.  If you don;t change it, why open it with  the program?     Just player around??

 

Video made with the photos will be adjusted to a lower resolution depending on what your video resolution will be - standard or high definition.  If you are going to print, anything higher than about  300 to 600 dpi won't show unless you plan to print a large scale image  Do you have a 2K , 3K or similar high definition TV?

I edit my photos before I use them for prints/large prints/photobooks etc.

and I was surprised that the photo went from e.g 4000 KB to 1200 KB even with almost no changes,

and to see what happenend if I only opened and saved the photo again I discovered that it still "lost"a lot 

of KB's and don't understand why - but it is a problem if I eg wants to make large prints.

The highest resolution option is limited to 600 dpi  There is no way of increasing that.

 

If you were serious about making large prints, you wouldn't be using this BASIC imaging program.   There are others and some of them are free.

By the way, did you get Corel's  Print Shop Pro when you bought your version of Creator NXT2?

Did you check the options? I think the program automatixally changes some of the size settings. Check especially the pixel size before and after the Save As
