    Default Photoshop - How to save large dimension jpeg or similar imgtype?

    Ok, I've started working on a huge map.. its 195x140 cm which is roughly something like 7 feet x 5 feet. 300 DPI..

    But Photoshop won't let me save it into a jpeg or tiff file..

    Raw and PDF doesnt seem to work either.

    Any ideas/solutions which can help me out?
    Thanks in advance

    strange - photoshop elements and the normal psd (not the psb) has a limit of 30.000 pixels, so you should be below that... what version are you using?

    I got it to work if I flatten the image and then save it, but I still don't get why I have to flatten it before it can save because, as you say, Im below 30.000 pixels.

    Your hitting the memory limit is what is happening.. At least that is what it seems like.. I have the same version but use the 64 bit one.. The only limit on the memory is what is installed on your machine..

    Are you aware that you always have to flatten a Photoshop document (PSD) first in order to save it as a jpg or tiff? The jpg and tiff formats don't support layers.
