my computer has 1GB of RAM, pagefile is off.
the image i was trying to view/open:
type: .tif file
size: 75 MB
image properties: 61803x7200x32b
(if you like to try, this is the image in rar (yousendit link)
i tried a lot of image viewers, nothing worked even when i turned on the page file to 4GB, most of the viewers just freeze.
ACDSee (version 5 and above) opened the image beautifully even with pagefile off
, mem usage increased from 30MB++ to 130MB++ and then dropped back to 45MB when the image is opened.
so amazing, big thumb ups to ACDSee.
edit: fix link.
