I've recently learned that hiding Photoshop layers will reduce the file size.
After searching around the Adobe forums I can't find anything stating this. There are only about half a dozen sites on Google that I found mentioning this trick as well.
I have a 300mb file with roughly 6 layers. When the layers are hidden it trims about 100mb off of the total file size.
I'm wondering what information is either compressed or lost by hiding layers? Will the file still be safe for print? Will the file still maintain it's compatibility options for other programs like Lightroom?
All of the articles I found talking about this trick don't explain exactly what's going on with this, and what information is being left out or compressed. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks!
