Performance editing huge images

Recommended Posts

Hi to all!

I needed to work with images af about 1meterx1meter at 300dpi resolution and my laptop was working for many minutes, then casually I discovered that the same on photoshop was 10-100 times faster, why? Should I need some config to make paint faster?

1m*1m at 300dpi or 118dpcm is 118110*118110 pixels and new file dialog estimates 52 gigabytes for the size...

That is an extremely massive image. It would require about 170 gigabytes of ram if my quick calculation about layer memory usage is still correct.

If you really need to edit images of that size, I would suggest using Photoshop.
