size of workspace only 800 X 600?


Recommended Posts

I need to work on an image that is 970px wide. It is a header. I need to fill the 970px width with a gradient. How can I enlarge my workspace? Currently it seems I'm limited to 800px wide.

Thanks for any help. I tried searching for this and if I missed the answer I'm sorry. Robin

I want to create a very large map, and Paint couldn't do it. I found Paint.NET in my search for a program that would handle larger files, but apparently it can't deal with the size of picture I wish to create, either.

I am stitching together two high-resolution maps of cities in my area to create a huge master-map, which will act as a background graphic for a transit simulation. The first map is about 7710x7453px and the second is 8738x7196. Both maps are PNG files. I imagine the final map would be around 14000x7500px or so.

PDN crashed simply trying to create a canvas that was big enough to hold the combined map.

Do you have any recommendations for succeeding at this task? My system is a Windows XP box with a single Pentium 4 processor and 2GB of memory. Maximum VM is set at 4092 MB, which ought to be more than large enough to accommodate even the big, combined map file; I am surprised that both Paint and Paint.NET choke on graphics of this size.

After reading this you might not be so surprised: viewtopic.php?p=152435#p152435

That's a BIG image!
