Photoshop not up to scratch

I just ran into something I’ve never seen in Adobe’s Photoshop CS before:

“The image exceeds the size Save for Web was designed for. You may experience out of memory errors and slow performance. Are you sure you want to continue.”

The image file is some 6.25MB, RAW format, 3502×2336. I chose to “Save for Web”. What’s big about that? Shouldn’t the “world’s leading” PHOTO APPLICATION handle this? Oh.. wait.. I get it; maybe that’s why they needed to buy Macromedia?

Needless to say, the much less expensive Paintshop Pro 9 handles the image without any problems whatsoever.
Gee, that makes me feel so much better; why do I even *need* two applications.. ?
