View Full Version : need help working on huge files

10 October 2004, 08:26 AM
Ok heres the problem, I have to work on 600Mb terrain file (satellite picture) and on my machine here at work its a tad slow,
now many years ago when I was a retoucher using Photoshop 3-ish or 4 (i think, was a long time ago) anyway you could import part of an image to work on and then export it back after you had finished on that part so you never had the whole file open at once.

Is there a way to do this in Photoshop 7? or maybe a plugin?

hope this is clear.. :)

as i suspected, poo :(

anyone know of any plugins that do the same thing?

seems like a stupid thing to drop. never used it but it sounds useful, there should be another element that does similar things

found it, its just not installed by default after PS4

is on cd/goodies/quikedit

just drop in in your plugin folder.

Well should be we couldn't find our PS7 or CS disk here at work so I dug out PS5.5 and used the one on that instead, works fine with PS7.

sorry if this is a kinda of double post but my last post saying this didn't show for some reason?
