When I try to edit a photo, I get a message saying the picture is too large. How big can a file be?

There is no specific size threshold as it depends on the amount of memory on the device and how much of that is free when attempting to open and/or edit the image.

Given the above, a user may find that Photoshop Express declines to open an image that is 12MB in size on their iPad while it opens just fine on their iPhone 4.

In the mean time we are considering ways to optimize Photoshop Express when dealing with large images on iOS devices.

With EyeFi cards now being able to do direct transfer from DSLR's to iPhone and Android, it would be really helpful if the Photoshop Express Mobile app could support editing those images, to facilitate mobile uploading of those images to social networking or other web sites.

Adding a *resize* option to Photoshop Express Mobile to permit taking a 12mp image and resize down it to a user-specified pixel width would be a welcome enhancement.

Additionally, support for watermarking/text addition would be very helpful, especially if a default location and default text could be specified so it does not need to be entered each time.

Is there any restriction on Output resolution?
I tried editing 8MP, but when i save after applying simple editing like Tint, the output was very small around 1MP..

Is there any information on this?

I recently uploaded a photo, 7.4MBs, to photoshop express from my iPad. It will let me edit the photo on the iPad, but it won't let me edit it online! What's the reasoning behind this? Shouldn't it work fine online?
