Tif files when cropped and save as, seem to double in size. The crop tool is set at Unconstrained and the value boxes are empty.
e.g - Original 16bit Tif was 228.96 MB, 7304px x 5478px @ 300dpi, once cropped down to 7304px x 2390px @ 300dpi and saved as becomes 405.21 MB.
Using photoshop CS6 extended and OSX 10.7.4.
Not sure why? Any tips or thoughts welcome.
If you saved with layers, the file size could grow. (like if you accidentally left "preserve cropped pixels" on in the crop tool)
If you changed the compression settings, the file could grow.
