Images uploaded to my site seem to be re-compressed, I just uploaded a 5.9MB image and re-downloaded and it was 2.3MB, another test image 24KB re-downloaded at 30KB.
Could someone do a test on my site? see if I am going mad 😆

Solved it, if "Keep image Exif data on upload" is not selected then the image is re-compressed to remove the data.
