I've gone back to an older version. When the did the update that made you save a JEPG as a copy, everything after that is less efficient.

jpeg I have 53 kb ... in very poor quality. When I save it as a copy,
it has 7 Mb but also very poor quality.«
Please provide the files or at least a meaningful description of the actual process.
Is there a relevant amount of Ancestors Metadata in the file?
