    The link @sterndata provided above does indeed show that WP auto compresses to 82% of original.

    Unfortunately, that is not what that link says.

    WordPress does *not* recompress the original image in any way. The “82” percent is not a size percentage, it’s a quality setting for the JPG compression algorithm. This is used when generating those various sizes of images. The number 82 was chosen as the optimal number to use based on size and quality concerns. It will not determine filesize by itself, that depends entirely on the image.

    You can read more about the original proposal and the work done on it here:
