Which program are you using?

Are you looking at file size on disk, image size in megapixels, image size in megabytes, or what?

And remember that those different measures of size are not directly comparable.

It seems that you are talking about the size of file and you seem to be saving it as a psd. When you create a psd, the size of file increases.
