There has been a thread on this topic before, but there doesn't seem to have been an answer.

I have a 1.3MB photo imported to iPhoto 09. All I want is to export the photo in exactly the same size and jpeg quality as the original.

Export offers me 4 quality options, and the observed exported file size for each option is:

Low: 0.8 MB
Medium: 1.3 MB
High: 2.0 MB
Maximum: 4.9 MB

So on the face of it, Medium gives me the original quality but is this really the case? And what are the High and Maximum options doing? They can't improve the jpeg quality.

Just drag the selected photo out from iPhoto onto the desktop. This creates an exact copy (same size, same resolution, same everything).

You can also do what chas_m has suggested to do with multiple photos, not just one. I like to have a folder created for when I'm dragging multiple photos to my desktop.

Thanks to chas_m and Moss for your suggestion - it works fine and is obviously the best way to do it.

But I'd love to know what iPhoto thinks it's doing with offering jpeg quality options - it just seems crazy to me.
