Hi All:

I am downloading my conference photos from my iPhone to my desktop. I 
use "Image Capture" with a hardwire USB cable. About half way through 
the 600 photos, it froze.
After four tech support folks, trying to get the rest to download, the 
final tech person suggested I turn OFF iCloud syncing, and pull them to 
my computer from Photos application. all the photos were there, and I 
clicked and dragged the half that I was missing.

Apparently they were already uploaded to Photos application on my 
desktop computer because ICloud was turned on on both my iPhone and the 
desktop.  Now, I've been told that Photos reduces the sizes of all 
images to small JPEGS. That would be horrible because I want the highest 
resolution that the photos were originally taken. So, that's why I use 
Image Capture. I want them on my computer, not the Photos, nor the 
Cloud, or anywhere else but my computer in a designated file.

Now I CAN upload the photos from my iPhone to Image Capture, because it 
is not incumbered by ICloud. NOW I notice that the images for both JPEGS 
and .MOV, are smaller once they were dragged and dropped to my computer 
from Photos application. The tech folks said they would not be reduced, 
that Apple had fixed that, or changed that, etc.  I had something 
clicked with a blue check mark to "keep originals" the same size.

Now a 30.5MB .MOV file from Image Capture is shown as a 18.3MB .mov file 
when I drag it from Photos.
A JPEG file at 9.3MB  from Image Capture is shown as a 6.2MB file when 
dragged from Photos. Photoshop says they are the same size and ppi.

So any other ideas on why they are reduced coming through Photos?  What 

Many thanks in advance.
