[digiKam-users] JPEG grows bigger. Why?

Another day, another question from yours truly. Actually, that's something I've noticed long time ago, but I never bothered to ask. Until now.

When I edit a JPEG file in digiKam, and then save at 100% quality, the result is usually double the size of the original (for example, a ~11MB JPEG file becomes larger than 22MB). Where do the extra megabytes come from?

Kind regards,
