NigelTufnel Posted January 14, 2008 Share Posted January 14, 2008 I'm creating a banner for my band. The specs on the image that the printer would like are 100dpi jpeg at actual output size. So the banner is going to be 3' x 6'. What I did was create a new PDN at 100dpi, 72" by 36". Now granted, this is going to take up some memory. But here's where it gets interesting. The project consists of 2 layers, one of some pretty simple text, and another with a black background and an image. The PDN itself is about 15MB on disk. But the memory used by the PDN application while it is loaded is well over 1GB. Since I don't have an analogous program like PhotoShop installed on my computer, I can't see if this is a normal expectation or not. Adding a third layer results in a message stating that there was "not enough memory to complete the operation". Both machines I have tried this on have 1GB or physical memory and a 1GB swap file. Granted, that isn't a lot by today's standards. I'm just curious if it is normal to expect PDN to take up over 1GB of RAM while a 15MB PDN file is loaded.
