Ive got a 12.5mb photo. Ive imported it into Photoshop as a smart object then placed 2 adjustment layers on top of it : brightness / contrast + Vibrance.
When i go to save the photoshop file the resulting file is 117mb.
Seeing as the adjustment layers are just non destructive 'settings' and the image itself is only referenced why is my file so large. My thought is that it might be caching a compiled version of the smart object + adjustment layers = final image that weighs 117mb, but this is only a hunch that its doing this.
How can i get this file to come out smaller ?
