File size, what does it depend on?


Recommended Posts

Hello. I was just experimenting on my illustration file. It contains large number of vector based shapes used as outlines/containers for my pixel based textures. So for example I have 29 and 38 individual pixel layers on leopard spots, which gives 308mb file size. But, when I merge all those pixel layers into one and vector shapes into one, I get 377mb file size. Why this is? Thank you.

Edit: Fun fact, if I change the document size from 7k x7k to 5k x 5k, the file size doesn't change not even for 1mb.

This is likely due to the large number of curves layers and pixel layers stored within the file. If you flatten your document you should find its around 100mb but this will prevent you from editing the layers further.

Please tag me using @ in your reply so I can be sure to respond ASAP.
