300,000×300,000 pixel Photoshop files
Those are, apparently, the dimensions a PSB file maxes out at. Out of curiosity, I tried creating a new document at those dimensions and despite having 36.91GB of free space I got the following warning:
@JonJungemann tried with 900GB of free space and got the same warning.
If anyone out there has more than 900GB worth of scratch disk space available, I’d love to know 1 how much is needed to create a file at those dimensions.
Update: @ckenney108 set a Drobo with 16.75TB of free space as a scratch disk and managed to create the file. It takes up 360GB of scratch space and 4.22GB on disk. I’m not sure why 900GB wasn’t sufficient to create it.
