Adobe Photoshop or Elements Tip of the Week:
Reducing PSD File Size in Photoshop and PSE
You can also watch this tip on video on our blog: Reducing PSD File Size in Photoshop and PSE [Video]
I'm often asked if there is any way to reduce the file size of layered Photoshop files, since PSD files with multiple layers can take up a fair amount of hard drive space.
One way to reduce the file size a bit is to save the file with the layer visibility turned off.
This causes the software to save the layered file without a thumbnail image.
Before saving your project, scroll to the top of the Layers Palette. Click the layer visibility icon (eyeball icon) and while holding the clicker, drag downward until you reach the bottom. This will turn off the visibility of every layer in your file.
Now save the image as a PSD (Photoshop file.)
The difference between a file with the layers on or off will be a few megabytes. This can add up and help you conserve space in your storage system.
When you want to open the file again, just click and drag the layer visibility icons from top to bottom to restore the visibility of every layer in your project.
Have a great week and we'll see you at DesignerDigitals!
