bigger, as in "more bytes" or as in "width/height" ?

what does "modified" mean ?

what language is that ? python ?

Please answer berak's questions - maybe it's just because of a different compression rate...

bigger means "more bytes". I am using openCV with C++ with visual studio 2012 ultimate.

it seems, you want to mess with the compression params when saving.

here's it for png:

vector<int> flags; 
flags.push_back(9);  // [0-9] 9 being max compression, default is 3

or jpeg:

vector<int> flags; 
flags.push_back(99); // [0-99]   99==max_quality==no_compression
