I wanted to do up a world (in Photoshop, as always) just to see how big I could do one; sort of in response to a question eoinmorgan had about doing such things in CC3. It started off at 25,000 x 12,500 but I couldn't run any filters so I cut it in half...the psd was eating up all but 500 megs of hard drive space. I only had 3 gigs of hard drive space left on my pc and when I went to save it, I couldn't. So I deleted 6 gigs worth of junk from my Temp folder...stupid surfaholic that I am. I did get it saved and here's a screenshot. Not sure if I'll ever post up the whole thing because I've got a few new experiments I'm going to try on it...just to see how they turn out. You can see just how small this section is when you look at the navigator window in the top right. You'll also notice that it's chewing up 2 gigs of memory in the lower left. That list of actions is for dragging out guides at various percentages so that I don't have to do it by hand.
