    File size problem

    File size problem is new to me,
    I tried to import in AR a file around 39Mb,in JPG,
    the slightest form of the image, still, it wasn't possible,
    AR did re-size it for me at 800x600,
    OK, I worked on it but when I wanted to make the finished work
    on the original size it was impossible also.
    The funny thing is that almost any other graphic program will do it.

    There are any for of allocation memory and I have no idea how much memory
    is allowed for it, it would be nice to be able to increase the capacity on occasionally big files.

    I would appreciate if you tell me something about the subject
    that may help.
    I also would like to know what the resizing from a small dimension to
    a bigger one may give as reproduction, are the files svg like ?

    A 39MB jpeg must have been pretty massive. JPEG stores data in a compressed form, so when the file is opened it will become much larger.

    ArtRage layers can use anywhere up to five times as much memory as most graphics packages because as well as the colour of the layer it has to handle the texture, the wetness, and other properties that make the paint feel real. This is why you may have had problems loading the image in ArtRage but not in other applications.

    Resizing the image won't retain perfect quality. SVG files are vector files so the data inside them is stored in a procedural manner. PTG files, like PNG, JPG, and most other image files store the image in pixel format so it can't be perfectly recreated at other resolutions. How good the scaling will look depends on how far you are scaling it and what your final output is (printer, screen etc.).

    Thanks for the reply .
    Yes, the original file was much bigger,
    first of all because of the size, second I was using watercolors and pastels
    in another program and at a certain point I wasn't able to continue
    as I wanted and I tried to continue the composition in AR3 which I did.

    The point is not that the dimensions but I want to give the best file
    for printing and I am not used to all considerations,
    I also was mixing cm and in which make things more difficult;
    now I am taking notes and will try to learn more.

    I was asking about SVG files just because I think AR give an excellent image rendering;
    I did understand your explanations still I think that I need to learn
    more about the relation between the file size and the best quality print.
    Thank you again !
