Hi guys,

 I am printing super high res images onto fabric. My print guy has instructed me to create my images in 
1440 dpi and my fabric is 58 inches wide and about 80 yards long. I need to create ONE image so they can 
just print it continuously along the whoe piece of fabric. So I need to create a REALLY BIG image. They 
have recommended Adobe Creative Suite, but of course I want to do it with GIMP. 

 Just today, I installed the latest GIMP, and it doesn't seem to be letting me create even a 58x72 inch 
image in 1440 dpi. Is there an add on or a way that I can create huge tiff files in GIMP?.....or do I have 
to shell out the cash and get Creative Suite?

1440 dpi would mean you print many many lines of pixels on
each single thread of the fabric. You misunderstood the printer.
Ask again what resolution they can actually print, and use
