I have been using Save As PNG compressed/slow. I have also used Quick Export as PNG and have notice almost no wait to the saving process. My questions are what is the difference here? Why is export so much faster, and I can continue doing work without lagging/crashing Photoshop compared to Save as PNG? Thank you.

Save As uses a higher compression level than ExportAS (though you can also choose not to compress as well).
