Hello,

 

  After I save for web, image showed  800x800 and 176KB.

But when I opened, it showed 1.83M from Photoshop Image size.

 

Better ask stupid questions then wondering

Thank you for reading it,

That's what jpeg compression does. When a jpeg is re-opened, it is decompressed back to its full native size.

 

This has nothing to do with resolution. Jpeg is a data compression algorithm. As such, it is incredibly effective, often squeezing a file down to 2-5 % of native size on disk.

 

But at a price. There's no free lunch. Jpeg compression is destructive, cumulative, and non-reversible. Every time you resave a jpeg, it degrades a little bit.

The file on the disk is stored using one or another compression algorithm. After opening, Photoshop "unpacks" and shows how much the file actually takes up in RAM.

When using a color depth of 8bpc, 1 color is encoded in 8 bit. 8 bit = 1 byte. If we are talking about an RGB image, then each pixel contains three colors, then an image of 800x800 pixels takes 800x800x3 = 1,920,000 bytes in memory. Or 1,920,000/1024 = 1875 kB, or 1875/1024 = 1.831 MB.
