I'm working with some big .psd scan files that have just 1-2 adjustment layers.
These files are going to be further edited and managed in Lightroom. To both keep the adjustments and but have Lightroom able to edit the files, I have checked Maximize Compatibility, however, I like to keep the adjustment layers.
This mode basically include a flattened version inside the original .psd file with the layers, allowing greater compatibility with other software that does not support layers.
If I save the file this way, the file is editable by Lightroom. But it takes a huge amount of space (basically doubled because of the embedded flattened version).
If I save the file without compatibility the file is the size I want, but Lightroom can't open it because it doesn't understand photoshop layers.
Isn't this weird? Lightroom is Adobe software, but can't understand Photoshop layers. To have the file edited, it must be flattened. Maybe with a .tiff file that seems to be more standardized I could have more luck?
The goal here is avoid to waste the space 2 times having to keep the embedded image aside the separated layers.
