Reduce size of files created by the “Layers” tool

I love how On1RAW 2019 now preserves the RAW data and I can adjust the layers later. It is so much better than the previous PSD approach.

Unfortunately the created files are unreasonably big, it seems so, not only are the RAW data of each layer being embedded, but also a full RGB representation of that layer, too.

I suggest to make it optionally possible to

  1. (optionally) disable the embedding of the RAW data and create a link to the original file instead (at least if that is in same directory)
  2. save the intermediate development result for a layer not in RGB but as JPEG

That really matters because it is just no fun to work with 600MB image files. When saving versions of that files it creates an immense volume of redundant data.

    I’ve never understood why files get so big. If I do layers with 2 photos of about 20MB each, why wouldn’t the total be around 40MB.
