In the Beginning...

In the beginning, the Skyline Display was formless and void. (My co-workers tell me this is tohu and bohu in the original Hebrew. That's the kind of people I work with.)

And the Designer said, "What do you mean, there's a two-gigabyte file size limit in Photoshop?!" and lowered his expectations to 180 dpi, which got the file size down to a more manageable 1.5 GB.

The Higher Authorities approved the design, and the work began.

Wait, Photoshop has *what*?

I thought this was the heavy-duty graphics editing tool used by professionals who sling around large files. Sure, 2GB is fairly large, but nonetheless the Gimp developers felt the need to work in support for larger files way back in the 1.x timeframe (1.4 IIRC, several versions ago now in any case). One would think Adobe could manage that as well by now.
