Photos for Mac

My Photo library size does not match the size of all my Photos

Hello all,

I've recently been starting to back up my pictures on a cloud service and realized something was off with my photo library. When I look at my Photos Library data the OS tells me it's 96.8 GB:My Photo library size does not match the size of all my Photos

However if I select all the pictures and videos in the app it tells me it's 71.48GB:My Photo library size does not match the size of all my Photos

Similarly, if I try to export all pictures and videos I get a folder that's around 60-70GB.

I don't understand why there is a 25GB difference between what the Finder says the Photos Library is and what all the files in library add up to. It's also really weird because my library had been around 60-65GB in size recently, and even though I've added a few pictures and videos recently, there's no way I've added 35GB of new data in it in just a few days.

Does anyone know why there is such a big difference between the Photos Library's size in the Finder and what the photos and videos seem to add up to?

Thank you all for your help!
