I am having trouble with photoImpact.
When I have a large image (>5MB) My computer goes nuts. When
photoImpact draws the image, it goes square by square, and takes about
10 minutes to draw the picture. Then, say I wanted to reduce the
amount of colors by the Format command. Well, the computer churns for
longer than I am patient, so I CTL+ALT+DEL it to close PI. This is
very annoying. The images I am working on are as follows:
Just got a scanner (Microtek ScanMaker X6)
Scannning in photos, magazine pages, etc for quality comparison.
Usualy 600DPI, Billions of Colors, and about 1900X1300
OC'ed P166MMX to 266
Soyo 5EHM mainboard
Matrox Millenium II video card
700MB free on my windows swap file drive
Is it just that photo editing takes a tremendous amount of CPU power?
I didn't think that it would get this slow on my machine though.
