wordpress images too large

How is it that an optimzed .png of 1081x753 with file size 61.5KB is converted to 1024x713.png and occupies 527.31KB. Overall WP increased the environmental impact of that one image ten fold, and as I publish about 100 or so of such images weekly server space is also occupied unnecessary.

The WP generated file of 527.31K optimises to 106K.

Also if I upload the optimised 1024x713.png of 106K, then WP generates a duplicate of 527.31K instead of just copying it.

I read it is no longer permissible, as was in the earlier releases of WP, to disable the auto generation of of 'large', 'medium-large' etc. files.

Also google degrades sites that serve unoptimized content. I consider this as defect and thus report it as a bug, if yo do not think so, please reassign to enhancements.
