    maximum still image dimension size

    Hi,

    I am trying to find the limit for importing a still image into MC 8.6.x or MC 2018.x.  I've been given an image that I'm sure is too large but I thought I'd try finding out what the actual number is. I've tried the manual and an online search without luck. The image I'm working with is 40k x 34k. The error is 'image size too large'. 

     

    Anyone know the actual number?

     

    Thanks.

    I know I’ve hit the limit, but don’t recall. Did you try Pan & Zoom? Or Import? Or Link?

    OK. So 16k x 16k 72dpi works, 17k x 17k dpi does not. So it's probably a 16-bit limitation.

    I should point out that I'm talking about importing an image (not linking and not using pan and scan). I did tests though and found that on MC 8.6.5 and on my macbook pro laptop (2018) I can link files up to 11k x 11k 72 dpi and I can use files up 24k x 24k 72 dpi using pan and scan's import.

    I thought Pan & Zoom might offer a large file. It might be total file size that’s the limiting factor, I don’t know. Good luck.
