Re: [Gimp-developer] Size on disk vs size reported on status bar

size in memory?

Yeah, it is the in-memory size, including the overhead for all the
gobjects etc.

The size of the XCF file on disk is 11.5 MiB as measured by the Dolphin file
manager. When I open the XCF file in GIMP, the size shown in the status bar
is 3.8 GB.

The current generation XCF files can contain compressed image data.
That'd easily explain the difference.
