    [NOT SOLVED, GAVE UP] How to open HUGE JPEG?

    Hello Fellow Forum Goers:

    Any ideas on how to open HUGE, and I mean FREAKING HUGE (>200 MB) jpg images? Sometimes gthumb will partially open it, but it will freeze so the image is there, but I cannot sort through images or do anything to the image; additionally, if I want to quit gthumb I actually have to kill it via terminal, not the GUI X button at top right.

    I have three photos like this. They were produced on a scanner at insane resolution settings and I cannot access the original images to create smaller (both in resolution and MBs) images. I need ot get them to a point were I can work with them. GIMP will not even open them. It gets to what looks ~99 % loaded and then freezes.

    Thanks,

    AlphaA

    I should add that you will not have to open the pic, just right click on it and resize.

    Hugin is a photo stitcher. It can handle large files.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install hugin
    It has a learning curve, but it is quite powerful.

    Posterazor also handles large images for printing across several sheets of paper. It might have some tools for shrinking the image.

    Hugin will open it, but I am on the left side of the bell curve. I still cannot figure out how to open or resize it (right clicking does not bring up any resizing options).

    Use ImageJ, from the National Institutes for Health. Professional software for research, open source, commonly used for handling huge images of all kinds. And you can resize with a couple of clicks. Also easy to use, with not too steep a learning curve. You need File > Open, Image > Adjust > Size, and File > Save As.... You can get it from the repository.

    I created a 400MB tiff file in Gimp without any trouble. Give it a try.

    alphaamanitin: You could resize the images with the ImageMagick Mogrify Command-line Tool
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install imagemagick
