    Inflated JPG File Size  - Photoshop Document:Ancestors Metadata

    iamwickedtall1 Level 1

      Has anyone run into this issue?


      I have a JPG that I have removed all image from, and filled with white. When I save it, the size is 7.89 MB. If I go into Bridge and clear the metadata, most likely the "<Document:Ancestors>" which contains "<rdf:bag>" , and 100+ lines of Hexadecimal code, the file size goes down to around 150KB. Maybe I'm missing a file save option out of photoshop, but It seems this metadata should be scrubbed on file saved. Additionally, does anyone know what kind of information is stored in Document Ancestors? Or if there is image information embedded that could potentially be extracted?
