Ctrl+S= Huge Filed Size

Recommended Posts

1. In the folder I create two identical files 1179 Kb

1.PNG.068d6c7a1a070b8fbba124bc05223650.PNG

2. Open the file 2.jpg
3. I change one pixel of the image.
4. Press Ctrl + S
5. I receive a file weighing 7236 Kb (7236/1179 = 6.13 ...) The file size has increased 6 times! O.o

I prepared the file for uploading to the site and I needed to make a minor change. I can't use fast save
1. Ctrl + S
Total: 1 second.

 To just save the file I have to
1. Ctrl + Alt + Shift + S
2. Choose a format
3. Choose quality
4. Set the location and save the file.
Total: 15-30 seconds.

:52_fearful:

Formally, there is a quick save tool, but I cannot use it.

I can offer several options on how to make the tool more usable.

In the global settings of the program, the user selects the toolkit itself.

1. Keep in original quality (as original)
2. As specified by the user as - (field for entering quality)
3. With each save, display a dialog box in which the user himself will set the quality.
4. Save to the highest possible quality (with increasing file size).

 

The tool will work as the user needs. And the user will be happy as this cast :76_ghost:

I can confirm that. I made a simple HSL adjustment in AF, then saved and file size increased from 640KB to 1911KB. Done the exact same adjustment in Paintshop Pro. File size only increased to 706KB. So what is going on with AF?

FIles renamed in Windows Explorer.

The difference is noticeable at high resolution. I used the file 5472x3648 px. The AP saves the default 100% quality settings.

This time I used a RAW file, developed it, then exported a JPEG at High Quality. Then I opened that file, and used the inpainting tool to remove a speck so small it was difficult to see without zooming way in. Then pressed CTL + S. File size increased by about 3.1%.

I can confirm this size increase on a .jpg file I tested here. Changed the shade of 1 pixel and the file increased from 395KB to 2985KB

IMHO, this is a major issue. I end up with very huge files too . Serif, do you plan to improve file size ? Is it possible to do it ? Can I avoid  to buy a 4th 10 TB HD for afphoto files ?

There are 2 issues here.

1) When we save a loaded JPEG, we don't save it at it's original compression level, this is a bug we can address.

2) The size of afphoto files can become large. There is no bug here, afphoto files are designed for fast load, fast save, and fast editing. It is not designed to be a size efficient storage format.

2. There are no questions to .afphoto. It is normal that their size increases in comparison with Jpeg.

1. Yes, if this is fixed, it will be fine. And if you add a quality selection dialog box (so that the user can specify the right one himself) it will be absolutely good. And if the output window of the quality settings will be selected by the user in the global settings of the program
[X] Keep in original quality (Do not ask when saving)
[  ] User settings (Ask user when saving)

Thank you Mark... finally an answer to one of my questions :)

1. Ok

2. I read you but I often end up with files of more than 0.5 Gb and sometimes > 1Gb with complex non-destructive editing (duplicated layers, live filters, masks, etc.). This is quite huge but I understand that it can not be changed. Since I am dealing with APh, I have not used Ad£$e PS but I will try to find some time to do the same editing in order to compare file sizes.

Cheers,

Patrick

The same file opened in PS and AP.
1. Layer with original image
2. Curve
3. Levels
4. Duplicate black mask layer
5. Vector rectangle shape (with visibility disabled)
