I've just started using Photoshop CC and I'm surprised by the large size of flattened files and also the size of the tiffs (with LZW) and jpegs (10 quality) they save out at. Whereas a typical LZW flattened tiff (CMYK) A4 size/300ppi would be around 24mb in my old workflow; I'm now seeing sizes in well in excess of 100mb. Similarly, jpegs files at my usual settings are also unusually large - what use a 60mb jpeg?
This all seems to stem from a general increase in the size of files whether layered or flattened. I'm working at 8bpc.
Any help or advise would be welcome.
Oh dear - I'm an idiot. I've been working at 300 pixels per centimetre rather than 300 pixels per inch hence the huge files! On the plus side: my work has never looked sharper.
