Oh boy, that's huge! :O
The largest I've seen was... I think it was a satellite image of earth, pretty huge jpeg image (70 megs or so?).
It isn't necessarily too
bad opening a 700meg TIF file, since they're usually uncompressed (which makes it easier to read only parts of it). I'm going to grab it and see how ACDsee32 handles it - bless the server for being able to deliver >2mbyte/sec to me EDIT:
took 5½ minute to grab the file, and after waiting 5 minutes for acdsee32 2.4 to open it, I killed the process... it had one of my cores maxed out for the entire 5 minutes, but only used ~5 megabytes of memory, so something tells me it's simply not able to deal with TIF files that huge.
Paint Shop Pro 8 gives me this message:
Not enough memory to complete this operation; close one or more documents or applications and try again. If this does not correct the problem, you may need to adjust your memory settings or work on a smaller document.
Perhaps because I run my system without paging file, and only have 2 gigs of memory
