B4 Viewing large images

Postby PSHRutPark » Thu Feb 12, 2009 10:55 am

I have noticed that viewing 90-125MB TIFFs (48/64bit) by double clicking on the thumbnail works fine but double clicking on 700MB files mostly results in "Out of Memory" error.

In the past there was no problem with any file size, including 48/64bit. The error doesn't happen by directly clicking the "full screen" icon, nor has there ever been the 8 bit warning for that mode.

The expression of the error seems to have been begun with the release of B4 or at about the same time I clicked the "don't show in future" option to the "Image will be converted to 8 bit for viewing" warning.

Pierre, is there a way to revert back to having the "8 bit for viewing warning again" so that I can check if the error is associated with that?

Hello Pierre,

OK. Thanks

Clicking on the icons of all size (80-720MB) images (48/64bit) on the desktop results in them being properly displayed in XnView. Whereas from within XnView , clicking the thumbnails produces inconsistent results for the largest files.

Later: I then realised that the problem was only occurring with the 700MB files that had been converted from 64bit to 48bit using a three day old update of ImageMagick. I updated to last nights release and converted a 950MB 64bit TIFF image to 48bit and the problem has not occurred (but does with the older conversions).

Three changes in the work flow at the same time: beta 4 release, cancelling the 8 bit reminder and updating to an erroneous release on Imagemagick.


Sorry for wasting your time.

PETER
