Thanks.

Sorry but I have to report some doubt here ... maybe it has no intentional and documented limits ... but in fact it has them ... as soon as the image size exceeds cca 100 MiB, it stops working: PNG can't be saved, resize does nothing, etc.

It is a common practice to set "no limits" in various types of software, but tests pretty always bring up the evidence of opposite very quickly: malfunction, unusably slow, crash :?

The issue is not critical for me - I can avoid 100 MiB images easily :mrgreen: , I just have to note that I consider this approach as "suboptimal" .
Yes, some formats & 'add text' can not be used in DOS
Because it uses those DrawTextA , CreateFontIndirectA and GetCharABCWidthsFloatA imports ?

Is Win32 the only version where 'add text' works ?

The only limit is memory :-) I'll check
