I normally ask the shop to scan my negatives, at the best quality available (which they call 16-base).

I used to get files of 3MB. Yesterday they gave me files of less than 1MB. I don't know why. I understand that a smaller file has less information, as the image has been compressed.

Why does the shop compress so much the image? And why should I pay for the expensive 16-base, if they give me small files with loss of image quality?

check the image size ,if it is ard 1800x1200,they probably did a 4 base scan for u.
a 16base scan is ard 3818x2546 for my scanner,frontier is ard 3600x2400..
