Large photo in photo editor
Took a bunch of 3264x2448 JPG pictures with my camera (each approximately 5MB). Opened them with photoshop did some minor color adjusting and when I saved the files again in JPG format the file size dropped down to 1-2MB. Why is this happening? 

I used the "High" quality setting for JPGs when I saved in PS. If they are going JPEG to JPEG why are they losing so much of their size?
Thry get compresses. Use save for web, that way you can choose how much compression and see the results, etc. It's in the file menu. Much easier than just save as or save.
