Problem is "Save for the Web" sets the DPI to 72 so you will have to change it back to 300.To do this in Photoshop you just need to re-open the file and select resize image, uncheck the "resample" box, this is so it maintains the same pixel size, then set the dpi back to 300, apply and then save it a second time, then you won't need a separate program.Also you can use a online DPI converter to set the DPI from 72 to 300, it won't affect the file as the DPI or more correctly today PPI is a "Printer Only Setting."https://convert.town/image-dpiFYI:"Save for the Web" is being phased out in Photoshop and is not on the save menu since CC 2015, it's listed as a legacy option on the "Export" menu now, my guess is at some point it will be discontinued completely.Some things I have found that cause huge saved files are nested smart-objects and shapes probably the vector data, I'd say there are likely many other things too, Adobe will not acknowledge the problem even exists and has thus far after five years not fixed it either.
