Unable to save on iPad due to low disc space, but I have 10 gb free.

I have an iPad 8 32gb, fully up to date, and I have the Photoshop app for it. After a bit of drawing, it notifies me that it was unable to save my work, which is followed by my iPad telling me that my storage is full. But when I check my storage, the storage use says ~25gb used, then jumps down to 23gb after a minute. 
I have 10gb space free yet it seems like photoshop keeps doing something to momentarily fill up all of that free space when in use. Help?

Hi @davidb17737307 

Since your question is about Photoshop for iPad, I have moved this from the Photoshop forum where you posted to PS for iPad

It sounds like you're exceeding the Scratch Disk requirements of your file.  Unfortunately, there is no setting for scratch disks on the iPad version of Photoshop.

 

You could try creating the same image at the same settings with the desktop version whle monitoring Scratch Sizes at the lower left of the document.

This will give you and idea of what's needed when you're working with a similar file on your iPad.
