    Set dimensions to 1400 width and 1000 height in settings.
    Uploaded an image in the media center that was 1600 x 780 and 195.2 kb in size.
    After uploading, the file is now 1400 x 683 and 1MB in filesize. HELP!

    Note: I’ve been through several image resizing plugins today and they all are doing this. I think WP must have made some changes to their function for image uploads.
    This has occurred on multiple WP sites, my testing is on a new install with a non custom theme and only a security plugin installed.

  • I replicated all this and file is reduced in size. You probably use 100% quality option (or some installed plugin). There is no need for it, all from 85% is OK. Eyes never notice difference.

    Mine file went from 572 KB to 273 KB on 85% quality option.

    Set to 85% it ends up at 208k instead of the original 195.2k.
    After sizing it down and optimizing at 85% the filesize should be much smaller, not larger.

    Can you put that image somewhere and give link here ?
    Dont upload via image sharing services, put it as simple file, not touched and converted.
