[Image-SIG] Creating HUGE images...
Fri, 23 Jul 1999 12:28:00 -0700
I'm trying to develop an easy method to create images much larger than the memory
available on the host computer, and have one big question:
-Is there any way to create a NEW image on the hard drive (with blank background)
without first creating it in memory? This way, I can create the 'canvas' as large as
I want, and paste in small chunks of data manually as I go, staying within the memory
limits of the machine. (Writing to an existing file shouldn't be a problem, just
creating the blank file in the first place is causing me problems)
I know I can read small sections of an image file at a time, using Fred's earlier
suggestion of modifying the .tile attribute. What I really need now is same thing
for writing to a file.
