Morning Photoshop guru's,

I photograph wildlife and have always crop my large images to the proportion that I like. For the last 3 days when I have being trying to crop my images, it crops to the aspect ratio I positioned it to but has massively scaled it up. It started at screen size of the original at 50% and once its cropped the picture it suddenly appears very zoomed in and with a zoom size of 3%. I have also noticed the file size has dramatically increased from 111MB to 1.76GB?

So whats happening guru's? LOL. Have I activated a setting that is pre-installed or is there something in the crop settings that increases the image but doesn't say 'enlarge' or scale size'. I am hoping I've ticked a box or added a zero to something via a keyboard or cursor slip that I haven't noticed. Any help would be appreciated.

Hello and welcome. I moved this thread to the proper forum.

Can you please walk us through the exact steps (workflow) that you use during this process. Screenshots also help.
