Per Input: 1 byte (type: either coinbase or regular spend) + 1 VarInt (pre-ringct amount) + 1 VarInt (the ring size) + Ring_Size VarInts (input offsets) + 32 bytes (key image)
Per Output: 1 VarInt (pre-ringct amount) + 1 byte (type: only regular spend type currently implemented) + 32 bytes (output one-time public key)
Tx extra: Includes 32 bytes for the txpubkey, may contain an encrypted or unencrypted payment id, a nonce if a coinbase tx, and can contain other arbitrary user defined information
Tx type: 1 byte (Version 2 transactions only)
Tx fee: 1 VarInt
Version 1 transactions only: 1 LSAG ring signature per input, each ring signature is 32 bytes * Ring_Size
Version 1 transactions end here. The remainder of the transaction structure applies to Version 2 (RingCT) transactions only:
PsuedoOuts (newly generated commitments for the real input amounts, so that your real inputs are not revealed): Per input: 32 bytes (PseudoOuts are present for tx type 2 RCTType2Simple transactions only)
EcdhInfos (encrypted output amounts and OutPk commitment masks): 64 bytes per output
OutPks (output amount commitments): 32 bytes per output
Range proofs: 6176 bytes per output
MLSAG ring signatures: Per Input: (64 bytes * Ring_Size) + 32 bytes
