I would like to know how I can see the actual size file before I save it. I work with very large files and some times I get over 4GB and I cant use the tiff format, but photoshop doesnt know this, and I lose time when I have to re-save the file again .
This is a big problem for our company since we lose alot of time when we working with pictures everyday.

and request!
I want to make groups for paths and alpha channels an be able to select the group or many paths/alpha and delete.
If I make a car retouch I can have 50 paths, and When I want to save the file as a RGB I have to delete each path, Its takes for ever!

And How can I be a test pilot and make suggestions/develop for photoshop?

Chris or Adam would be able to better answer question on estimating the size prior to save. I think the short answer is, we don't have an accurate way to predict the compressed size and don't know until we actually save the file.
