In a good mood so I thought I'd share one of my favorite Photoshop tricks.
This has saved me tons of time. Try it.

Erik Ko (head of UDON) showed me this Photoshop Sorcery when I joined the studio back in 2003 and I've been using it ever since.

Wow, that's nuts.  Presumably that's a preview pic being stored in there.   I wonder if it makes a difference to load times?

Oh wow that is a nifty little work around.

You can essentially do the same thing by simply turning off "Maximize PSD and PSB File Compatibility" in the File Handling Preferences. :) When it's turned on, a flattened version of the file is saved for software compatibility purposes.
