Re: [Gimp-user] Huge image problem

The obvious question for me is: what do you hope to do with the finished map? Mount it on a wall? Make it the size of a driving map? Put it in a book? Put it on the web?

Your end use will determine how you reduce it. Don't forget that optical processes (high resolution map making camera or scanner) may be your friend for at least reducing the huge physical size to a working size. Film has far greater resolution than digital.

File sizes are affected by bit depth, number of colours and resolution.
