I have been following this thread with interest so I decided to do some
tests. The results may be relevant or not as the case may be but I think
that they are interesting. My little camera gives a RAW image = 8.6 MB
and a jpeg image = 2.6 MB. The developed RAW image from UFRaw saved at
98% jpeg = 17.2 MB and then that image loaded into GIMP and saved as xcf
= 17.0 MB.
