The gentleman in this photo asks me to edit photos for him from time to time.  He sent me the RAW image (12+ MB).  After my levels work, the PSD file was 89+ MB.  When I flatten it, it is right at 6MB.  He requests that I "add size to the image" because he is going to crop it.  Is there a way to add size to an image?

Great!  Then that's all you can do.  Explain to him that jpeg compression works very efficiently on photos that have areas of broad flat colour; so the sky (and to some degree the water) in this photo are the reason that the file isn't larger.  Assure him that the quality is exquisite, and that he can safely print it as large as a house if he desires.
