Uploading a JPG File into a Blob problem

Hi everyone

I'm using Forms10G
Oracle Databse 11G

Right now I'm uploading JPGs images into a blob column using webutil which is implemented in the app. But something weird happen. It seems the file is using more space that it would. For example: I just upload an 800Kb image, and when I try to download it the size is like 1.12Mb (I'm using Reports10g to accomplish this, converting the image to a PDF file) and even the size in the DB is bigger too.

Is this normal?

Hope you could help me!

Thank you!
