CS6 file size

Feb 9, 2013 5:38 AM

Hi

Could anyone explain why my tif file sizes seem to be substantially (around 50-100Mb) larger in CS6 compared to CS4? Im talking flattened files 8bit. What used to be around 70mb is now between 150 and 220.

Any suggestions?

    Are you sure you're using the same compression option for TIFF in CS6 and CS4?

    What are you using for file size?  If you use the size in PS you be misled.

     

    What is the size registered by Bridge or Win. Expl.?

    As an example in Bridge a jpeg image that is 226kb is listed as 8.3MB in document size in photoshop.

    Ya got yer open file size and ya got yer closed file size.

     

    But with a flattend, uncompressed TIFF with no Alpha Channels... those should be pretty darn close.

    In my example above the jpeg was just opened and there is an 8 meg size increase.

    Right.  The 8.3 MB is the open file size.
