I have a 64 bit W7 machine with 3 Gb or RAM. I just upgraded From PSE7 to PSE10. When I try some of the new features like POP ART and attempt to save the file (150.3 MB), I get a File Size Too Large error. I still get the error when I try to save it as a JPEG and reduce the size of the file.

Any ideas on how I can increase my file size limit or to stop this error from occuring?

Thank you in advance,
Jason

What happens when you open the file in full edit mode and save as jpeg? Are you able to save it?

As a workaround, please try exporting the file from Organizer at lower quality.

I cannot use the Pop Art feature in Full Edit Mode. I can save most files using different effects, but anytime I try the Pop Art it will not let me save it.

hi Jason,
Please try this one-
1)Go to preferences (ctrl+k)
2) go to performance tab.
3)Increase the RAM requirement to PSE from 70% to upper value.
4)change the scratch disk other than primary os disk due to avoid thrashing.
5)Now restart your application and try the work-flow.

please let me know if it does not solve your problem

it made no difference; I have many, larger files in Organizer that display just fine.

Deryck, the topic of this post is that when saving a file from the Editor, an error is returned. If you are encountering issues with files in the Organizer, please see if there is another relevant post or create a new one.

What are the pixel dimensions of your document? That is likely the reference when referring to the file size being too large.
