What's the logic behind Lectora and how it "creates" it's image(s) folder?

I guess I want to know why I have a file named a90k9282.jpg in my development images/ folder that is 310 KB but when I export my package it convers to a90k9282crop_image203805.png at 2,736 KB. Is it because I have a strong overlap outside of the "visible" page?

Cheers.
Andrew

    Hi @andrew-robertson I was able to recreate this by cropping my image. If we are appending "crop_image203805" it is because the image has been cropped from the Style tab. This should not impact your published content.

    Hello @tasiala - I always export using SCORM 1.2 or HTML, but in this case I am exporting to SCORM1.2 for my LMS.

    Thank you @tasiala for doing that for me. It most definitely doesn't impact my content, I was just curious as to the cause/reason why that was happening because I am trying to bring my ZIP package and all subsequent media files down to as small as I can to ensure speedy delivery to our slowest sites (3mb is nothing for us on high bandwidth but when you don't have the Elon Musk internet out to sites in northern Canada yet that are still on satellite dish at 1mb per second for the entire site - eLearning def. takes a back seat).

    Yes, I could have done the test myself - so I apologize for that. Thanks again!

    Always great to see you here, @andrew-robertson! And because you can always count on me for a tangential remark, I really like it that Lectora automagically "crops" anything out of the running project that hangs outside of the visible project stage while preserving the original image. For me, that's a real time-saver, especially when tweaking the RCD views, and preserves my ability to change up the layout later.
