Recently i found that if you simply change your .psd file over to .png (.not gif) then it will reduce the file size, without losing quality o shrinking the image by 75%, (example: PSD: 2MB changed to PNG: 673 KB), does anyone have any other suggestions because i save alot of hard drive space by doing this, and it loads up faster on Photoshop.

If i were u, i would invest in a external hard drive. at least a 8gb, that way u dont have to deal with all that compression crap.
