To check for bloated photoshop:DocumentAncestors metadata, use File > File Info > Raw Data:

 

If you see a single line message that there is too much metadata to display, then that would indicate excessive photoshop:DocumentAncestors metadata.

This not only has to be performed in the main file, but also by opening up each smart object and checking there as well. If a smart object contains another smart object, then you need to check that as well.

If it doesn't need to retain the Smart Object, rasterizing the layer should solve it.

You have embedded smart objects in your file and many layers which could account for the large PSD file size.

As for the jpg, in the first window it has an option to Embed the color profile. That will add to your jpg size.

I appreciate your help , but It's the first time to get this problem..

 

This is another design , The same size / Full of layers / Full of Smartobjects

BUT It's normal when I save it ( smaller than 50 MB PSD ) & ( 4 MB JPG ).

That's why I'm shocked !!

Thats the size I was getting when testing this as well. Not sure why you are getting such a large file size.

One thing you can try is to flatten the image and then save to a jpg and see what you get.

If you are still getting the 145 mb size, perhaps try moving your layers to a new document - it could be metadata bloat like the Photoshop History preference turned on.

Have you saved your jpg yet? Is it really that size after it completes?

Have you checked Preferences/History to make sure you don't have History Log active?

What happens when you bring over the other layers without the background?

Or is it any layer added creates the bloat?

OK .. I've made a tricky move .. but I don't why it's working !!

I've added all layers ( including the background ) to a Layers Group and moved the group

to the new document .. Then I ungrouped it and it works !

 

but If I move them without a group it make the problem. This is weird!!

OK, once the metadata is in the file, it will need to be removed using one of the scripts mentioned here:
