Save for Web "preview" option for saving time

When I want to save an image for the web which is too large (e.g. 5238 x 3493px), it takes too much time.

Sometimes, I've already saved a PNG before and now I want to export a JPG which is quite big. The preview system starts by optimizing my big image as a PNG (which I don't want) and it totally freezes photoshop during this process. So I have to wait 20 seconds and then select JPG, and wait another 8 seconds, and then resize the image.

This is totally contrary to UX. I should be able to chose whether or not to display a preview of the export (for instance, it could display my image with a layer on the top saying "click here to generate a preview", and when the image is very big: "This could take a while as your image is big").

It would save us time ;)
