Why can't I save a Jpeg file at 32000 x 16000 pixels? According to wikipedia JPG supports a maximum image size of 65535×65535.

I'm running Photoshop CS5 for windows.

The JPEG format limit is 64k in either dimension.

But the Photoshop implementation prior to 13.1 only allowed up to 30000 pixels in either dimension (historical reasons, plus odd bugs that took a while to straighten out).

With Photoshop 13.1, the limit is now 64k.

JPEG files are still, however, limited to 2 Gig (a limitation of the format and other implementations).
