Does it make sense what I'm doing now? or more importantly how you want it?
Make sure you type in the 'px' after the 800 and 600, when you are entering it into the set crop width box, else I think PS will change it by default to inches.
I'm not sure why you would want to crop your image to 800 inches by 600 inches that's something like 67 by 50 feet!! :-) If you mean 8 inches by 6 inches* that would give you a cropped image size of approximately 3584 px by 2688 px (based on my set up) so it is to be expected that the filesize would be nearly 5 times larger than an 800 px by 600 px image as there is nearly 5 times the amount of information in the file.
*Try to avoid resizing images using inches or cms, particularly if you are mainly going to be displaying your images on your screen. An inch/cm is a different physical size on different devices. For example, a 1 inch image on your screen won't necessarily print out at 1 inch because of different resolutions on your screen versus your printer. And this is where I'm going to leave this bit, before I start to confuse us both with dpi and ppi etc.
I hope this helps, rather than confuse further.
