        Then what was the point to making the export function?

         

        I can see save for web doing this as 72 ppi is standard for screens, but not export as functionality

         

          Save as will alter the titling on the artboard if saving a file with no layers... Adding extra time  that the export function was supposed to help by allowing changing of image size to export to a particular dimension....

         

        What is happening lately Adobe?

          You can stop shouting, giovani. This is by design, it is not an "issue".

           

          • Export and Save For Web do not export at 72 ppi. They strip resolution metadata altogether from the file. The file in fact does not have a ppi at all when exported - not 72, not 96, not 300, nothing.

           

          The 72 figure appears when the file is reopened into Photoshop, and a default value of 72 is assigned, because it has to assign something. Other applications have different defaults.

           

          This is done because Export is intended for screen viewing only - web, phones, tablets. On screen, ppi is a completely meaningless figure. It only applies to printing on paper. If that's what you're doing - don't Export. Save As.

            I've been having a similar problem using Image Processor in CC2017 to create thumbnails constrained to a maximum of 180 pixels in the largest dimension. Some files processed as expected and resulted in files of 20KB or so, whilst others were saving at 4MB.

             

            I eventually resolved it by disabling the 'Include ICC profile' option so that seems to be where the problem lies, in my case at least. I tested this further by doing a 'Save as' of the original file without the embedded colour profile and halved the resulting filesize.

             

            Hope this is useful to someone else who's been tearing their hair out over this.

              An icc profile is only 3 kB, so that simply can't be, unless the profile is massively corrupt. It is never a good idea to strip the profile.

               

              It is known that file history metadata sometimes can balloon a file to enormous sizes (several MB). I rather think that's it.

               

              Try Export or Save For Web with metadata set to "none" or "copyright". That should strip out all those megabytes.

                A profile need not be just 3 kB. A CMYK profile is typically multiple megabytes.

                  Well, it it simply *can be*. Whether or not it's a corrupt profile I don't know, nor would I know how to tell, but this definitely resolves it for me. Screenshot attached of image processor results:

                   

                  .jpg is with included ICC profile

                  _1.jpg is without ICC profile

                  _2.jpg is with ICC profile, but with 'convert profile to sRGB' selected.

                      i have the same problem. i'm working in CS6 and the problem only surfaced when working with cc files i had to open.

                       

                      save for web does the job correctly, but it's impossible to create a correctly (file-)sized jpg through the "save as" process.

                       

                      -with/without colour profile: no effect

                      -changing the file's size or resolution - no effect

                      -pasting the file's art into an new file - no effect

                      -converting to another colour mode - no effect


                      can anyone at adobe fix this please?

                        Using File > Export> Save for Web, set Metadata to "None" or "Copyright", save the file,  and tell me if you get a reasonable size.

                          This problem just showed up in my photoshop CS6 as well.  Up until a week ago, files were saved at a reasonable size.  For three years, there has been no change in my process, no change in my hardware, no change in my software.  Suddenly, even a white background 4x5 inch photo with nothing other than black text on it comes in at over 6MB.  I don't understand how a bug could "suddenly develop" when there have been no changes in anything on my end.  I ran MacAfee and this does not appear to be the result of a virus.  I'm in CS6,version 13.0.1.

                           

                          Any suggestions on resolving the actual problem, rather than creating a whole new process of saving as a PNG, opening, then resaving as a JPG (which did actually work) for all of my many, many pictures that I process each week?

                            Hey guys, just got this bug and yes saving without metadata worked as a quick fix.

                             

                            Honestly have no idea how Adobe manages to put 5MB of metadata into a file. Seriously, try turning down quality to 0 for a jpeg, still 5mb.

                              This issue has been looked into by engineers here in the forum a couple of times. In all instances it turned out to be what they called "ancestors metadata" - IOW a record of the file origin and history. The metadata isn't put there by Adobe, but users.

                                  Now, I have no opinion as to why this history metadata is included, or whether it should be included, but that's the way it is.

                                    I'm having the EXACT same issue except the file sizes are FAR huger.

                                     

                                    Consider the following screenshots to illustrate:

                                     

                                    1. Saving a simple red block image 1080 pixels high by 801 wide.  Scratch size in Photoshop shows 2.48M

                                    Screen Shot 2017-05-26 at 11.13.09 PM.png

                                    2. Choosing JPG with compression of 9/high suggests a file of 19M (but saves at 15.7M)?  WHY?

                                    Screen Shot 2017-05-26 at 11.06.00 PM.png

                                    3. To try and avoid the saving issue -- I've tried: Select all > Copy Flattened > Paste to NEW using clipboard -- and then Save As... and still 19M suggested /15.7M Actual size. WHY? It's a red block from a new file with no metadata...?!

                                    This is a bug and we need to know how to fix it.  As evident here -- enough users are having the issue -- and since we are paying for this software, and this is effecting our productivity having to use annoying work-arounds, it should be resolved. Especially since we're now forced into a subscription model where our software is meant to be continually updated.

                                     

                                    Please help. This is not user error. It's a bug. It's slowing down users productivity, is a massive pain, and it's unacceptable.

                                      There has been no bug found so far in this thread. If you read back through it there were two issues.

                                       

                                      The first was metadata (which can get huge). If you are creating a new document from scratch then this is unlikely to be your issue.

                                      The second was a broken (and very large) color profile. What color profile is attached to your document and have you tried saving without the profile to see if that is your issue?

                                       

                                      I tried the exact document size here (as 8 bit RGB in the Adobe RGB color space) . With the same jpeg settings I get :

                                        There will be a difference between the metadata in the “save as” files vs. “save for web” or “export”.

                                         

                                        Compare the 15mb files to the 11kb file – is there a photoshop:DocumentAncestors metadata entry when exploring via File > File Info > Raw Data?

                                         

                                        You could always share the files via DropBox or similar for others to explore.

                                          This is not a bug but a very annoying thing.

                                          Find a "history log" in preferences and disable it. You can also run this JSX script to remove metadata from a file that already exists

                                          //Now run the function to remove the document ancestors 
                                          deleteDocumentAncestorsMetadata(); 

                                           

                                           

                                          For others viewing this thread in may 2017 - is there any easy way to remove metadata from the document or probably even prevent it to load in any documents? I'm working with few designers that have this stuff enabled for some reason (I use their templates or psds) and I hate so much to doublecheck every saved image or use export functions instead of saving

                                          It is very annoying, really

                                            Until Adobe offer a direct feature to disable this feature, end users have to use workarounds…

                                             

                                            (1) Offhand, you could setup the script to remove DocumentAncestors metadata to be automatically run via the Script Events Manager when a document OPEN, SAVE or EXPORT event is used.

                                             

                                            (2) I might be able to hack something together in Adobe Bridge from other scripts, which is a better choice than opening up images into Photoshop. Edit: This is proving to be not so easy!

                                             

                                            (3) Another option is to use the CLI driven ExifTool on already saved files, which is great if you have files that use lossy compression:

                                            Note (this could take some time, target lower level folders and work one folder at a time if there are many files):

                                            All readable/writable file types in the top level folder and any sub level folders/files in the nominated file path would have their Photoshop XMP DocumentAncestors metadata removed, overwriting the original file/s. Ensure that you have backups of the data first, or remove the -overwrite_original command. Use at your own risk.

                                             

                                             

                                            A technically better approach may be to introduce a conditional processing step, so that only files that contain DocumentAncestor metadata are processed (this could take some time, target lower level folders and work one folder at a time if there are many files):

                                            Mac users can set slightly modified versions of these commands into an Automator task that can be accessed via a simple contextual right click on files/folders, or any of the other possible processing methods available (drag-n-drop to application, watched folders, scheduled via Calendar etc).

                                             

                                            Windows users can set slightly modified versions of these commands in a drag-n-drop .exe or use scheduled tasks to run the commands from a .bat or .cmd file etc.

                                              OK, I figured out the Bridge script!

                                               

                                              https://forums.adobe.com/thread/2340460

                                               

                                              However I don’t understand why Bridge requires a 2 step process! All this time I thought that the code was bad, when it was “working fine”.

                                               

                                              Step 1: Run the Bridge script to remove DocumentAncestors metadata (the file size does not change, when it “should”)

                                               

                                              Step 2: Apply a secondary metadata change in Bridge, such as adding/removing a temporary keyword, or rotating clockwise and then rotating back counterclockwise again to “force the image to reset”

                                               

                                              The second step for whatever reason will force the file to update and take into account the removal of the DocumentAncestors metadata and then applies the file size reduction!

                                               

                                              The code:

                                                Hello, I am having the same problem, I am running Mac OS Sierra 10.12.4 and Photoshop CC 17.0.0 Release on a . Every time I save the JPEG it doesn't go down below 3mb file size event if I set the quality to 0. I usually do batch process from bridge, It ends up having huge image sizes after export to jpeg. I've already everything, restarting photoshop, bridge, restarting computer etc.

                                                        I am having the same issue and it just started happening about a month ago. We're using the latest version available on Creative Cloud.


                                                        What we're doing is taking a JPG file, setting it up for print (normally at 200ppi for black and white newsprint) and saving it out as a JPG or PSD to be embedded into an InDesign file. Normally these small ads would be ~1MB, but we've started incurring a lot of bloating in these JPG or PSD files suddenly over the last few months. We've reinstalled, reset preferences to no avail. This issue generally only happens on one install running on a MacBook Pro (2.3 GHz Intel Core i7, 16GB RAM)

                                                         

                                                        Here is a link to download two example files to demonstrate the issue:

                                                          Yes, it’s DocumentAncestors metadata again (around 15mb of bloat), this Bridge search isolated your images as matching this criteria (as does using File > File Info):

                                                          Again, my previous posts #58 and #59 in this topic offer solutions to this issue.

                                                           

                                                          I recommend setting up the Photoshop script in Script Events Manager on all computers and also installing the Bridge script to put out spot fires where needed. Direct links to the script source code:

                                                          Keep in mind that a simple export/save for web can also strip metadata, which should be used for “web” images, however sometimes users need to send out hi-res data or CMYK etc, so export/save for web is not always suitable and then these Photoshop or Bridge scripts will be necessary if the files are bloated.

                                                              Did the file you were working on originate from the web as a resource? I worked on a PSD file for a mobile phone, when I save the file as a TIFF it was 26MB. I thought this was wrong, so saved it so it was 1cm wide. When I checked the file is was still 26MB. Which clearly means there is meta data or something in the bloating it.

                                                               

                                                              So, to resolve the problem, I saved as a TIFF again. The file was 26MB. I opened it in the excellent Graphic Converter. I literally just did a save as, saved over the TIFF and when I checked the file it was 2.8MB as I had expected.

                                                               

                                                              Basically, you have data in there, that no matter what yo do stays connected to the file.

                                                                    Hi derrickwills– one needs to double check the actual metadata before assuming corruption. If the excessive file size is due to DocumentAncestors metadata and not due to corruption, creating a new blank file and dragging over the layer will carry over the bloat and will not reduce file size. P.S. Rather than dragging, using the Apply Image command to “stamp” data between documents does not carry over any embedded DocumentAncestors metadata.

                                                                    • 71. Re: Photoshop saving issue (FILES TOO LARGE)

And I've also discovered this approach suggested by derrickwills, to create a new document, and duplicate all layers to the new document. Currently, this workaround works fine for me.

Still saved as a 10MB JPEG file.

                                                                            The only workaround was to create a new file of the same dimensions and drag and drop the Background layer to the new document. Only then did it save as 144mb.

The only thing I can think of is I'm collaborating with another artist on a gig - he's working on a Mac and sent me a PSD he was working on so I could wrap up (unknown version of photoshop on his end but I'm running at the latest version).

                                                                              Now, any asset originating from his PSD saves as a 118.8MB JPEG (regardless of changes in DPI or composition dimensions). The JPEG file size/quality slider results in only a single MB difference between 0 and 10 on the slider.

                                                                              This applies to even to any flattened images that originated from content in his PSD.

It looks like his file is experiencing the bloated metadata problem and it's carrying over into any visuals I use from his PSD. Unfortunately, I'm not a programmer and I'm a bit too close to the finish line on this gig to run the metadata removal script without knowing exactly how it would affect my own work/files.

                                                                                  Looks like I'll have to look into it once I'm wrapped.

                                                                                    After much tearing of hair, deleting Photoshop CS6 Preferences and eventually reinstalling the application, it turned out the problem was happening because I'd previously edited the image with the Picktorial application before exporting it as a tiff.
                                                                                    When I opened a completely fresh version of the image in CS6, the resulting jpeg was tiny.
