Changing the exposure all by itself will not affect the file size
... something else must be going on? Check the actual number of
pixels with your image editing software. Check the raw (uncropped)

This wouldn't make sense. As long as we're talking about Vuescan,
make sure we know what "cropping" means. Traditionally it means a
smaller area of the original image, but with VS it also means any
number of things done to the image after the raw (uncropped) scan.

Not if the rotation is 90degrees. If the rotate is something
other the image will soften.
