Hello.
I have a problem when i'm trying to save a photo in JPG.
So what i did was that I imported 40 (high resolution) photos and flattned the image.
i click ''Save as..'' It gives me the option to choose Large document file, TIFF or Photoshop raw.
I have the mode RGB-8 bits channel.
I tried saving the file as a PSD and its more than 8GB big so its a quite big file.
I have tried deleting the preferences, Reinstalling photoshop and restarting my computer.
The photos have been manipulator in lightroom 5 earlier, if that makes any different.
What can i do?
(btw i'm on a mac book pro and running photoshop CS6)

Hello, what is the size, in pixels, of your document?
I think that the max JPEG size is 30K pixels in either direction.

Why would you need such a large size?

8GB is huge(- it might be the uncompressed size), and might, once saved, be bigger than what PSD and TIFF are supposed to allow. PSB might be a better choice (it is Photoshop large document file, that seems to be proposed...)
So either shrink down JPEG copies, but keep the original file with layers in PSB.

Save your file in Tiff or PSB (Large Document Format) if the they are greater than 2gb in file size.
