I'm working on a 300 DPI (print) Photoshop document.
I imported a medium quality .JPG file (~ 3 MB) into a layer of the Photoshop document.
Problem: the size of the Photoshop file has now grown from 4 MB to 13 MB ! (If I do the same for all images that I want to embed, the document will end 3 times bigger as it should)
I know that Photoshop is a bitmap/picture editing software and not a page-layout software like InDesign, etc. and I know it's usually a bad idea to use Photoshop for something else than photo editing. But still:
Is it possible to import a 3 MB image into a new layer of a Photoshop file, such that the size of the Photoshop file won't grow more than 3 MB?
