can you prepare an image for wide-format printers if PageMaker has
a size limit of 52 inches?
finally finished InDesign, their "Quark Killer" software.
Adobe InDesign can handle images up to 18 x 18 feet. That ought
to tide us over for a year or so.
Light camera can produce huge images with its 4x5 large format
capabilities. It was limiting to be hamstrung with layout software
when my Encad
printer was just waiting for monumental images. Sure, you could
print from Photoshop, but that software croaks on files over 410
MB and has parsing errors on many of my digital photos when they
are over 340 MB.
Better Light has a rotating turntable, so takes complete 360 degree
panoramas. The Better Light can also rotate round objects and peel
off their circumferential design (a "rollout" photograph).
Both these modes result in such large images. A normal shot is only
about 140 MB (with no rotation of the system).
do you store images of this size? Burn lots of CD-R
disks, buy several RAID
systems, and get the new DVD-RAM technology
are immediate answers that we have worked with. It also helps when
Apple Computer provided our test center with a Mac loaded with 548
MB RAM which we then upgraded to 800 MB.
