    Massive files - help


      Hi there,

      I do very standard editing in Photoshop CC - mainly portrait retouching including curves, levels, some dodge and burn, frequency separation- nothing unusual. 

      My file sizes however, are enormous - routinely close to 500 mb and some over 1 GB.

      I am generally exporting from LR to PS using the "edit in PS" command, beginning with RAW files of about 23-25 mb (Canon format); as 8 -bit files.

      As I am adjusting the PS files from time to time, I don't save them flattened, but instead maintain all the layers. Still, 1 GB+ seems too large.


      I've searched and am not finding solutions - and appreciate any tips on this.


      Thank you!
