Possible to save multi layer as JPG or other compressed format?

Recommended Posts

I work with very large photos, and need to add shapes/comments etc. to it. It's easier to add these shapes as a seperate layer, since it's easy to edit them later. Problem is when I save the photo, it's saved as .PDN, and the file size is VERY large (often 300MB +) since I guess the format is lossless. The source file is usually a heavily compressed (75) JPG at around 15MB. Is there any way to work with multilayer images, and have it saved in a compressed format?

dipstick, PDN and PNG are losslessly compressed. JPEG is lossy compression. There's a major difference :) Both are compression, but have different goals.


blickbox, You cannot save a PDN with lossy compression.
