Large files don't export properly

I am completely new to PS and want to understand a bit of strange behavior.  I got PS for final editing of very large, stacked and stretched astrophotography images.  I output them from an AP processing program as 16 bit tif and then open in PS.  My current image is 127 x 48 inches at 72 pixels per inch.  After a number of levels and curves adjustments I get it where I want it with crisp blacks and good color.  But, if I try to export a png or jpg, flatten the layers, just about anything, the output is noticeably tinted magenta. 

 

If I resize the image to from 5% to 20% smaller, the tint becomes progressively less evident.  If I resize about 25% or more, the tint effect disapears.  

 

I want to understand why I am experienceing the proble so I can avoid it in the future.  Should I simply rescale the images before editing in PS?   How far down would it be resoanable to scale them without losing details for viewng online?  How about for printing?  If I just need to read the Fing manual, feel free to tell me so.

Dont use "export" better to use Save As

You'll want to check Enable legacy "Save As" in file handling Preferences

Plus always be sure to make a duplicate, archive the original and, working on the duplicate, flatten the layers before saving in a formal like Jpeg which doesn’t support layers. 

 

I hope this helps
