I spent most of last night trying to build a banner for my dads book store. The guy at Kinko's said I need to create the banner at the actual size the banner is going to be. This for a book festival and the banner needs to be about 5' x 1.5'. That makes the actual file size about 371MB's. It seems to be just too big for my computer to be able to save it. Every time I try I get an error message saying there's not enough available memory try shutting down some programs or making the file size smaller. I have a GIG of ram and that doesn't seem to be enough. I also tried making my paging file way bigger than it should be and still no luck. Any ideas?

:help:

Can you maybe burn it to a cd, or save it on some external media?

I can't burn it to CD cause until I can save it there's nothing to burn? :(

or slap the kinko's fucker in the head for being daft.
if you wanted to print out lettering for a football field, would it have to be lifesized on the screen?

Talk to the manager there, the kids behind the desk know how to zerox, nothing more. You should be able to save the graphics you want used on the banner, then give him the wording with a diagram of the layout and they'll type in the rest.

I think Daddy is gonna pay me so that is not an option.

(Special note: "You” Should be "Your" if you're gonna be cute at least learn the difference between singular and possessive :rolleyes: )

Well that was for winme not win2k pro, what I have but I read it and it's pretty much what I did last nght. I increased the pagew swap from 1.5 to 2 gigs. Actually Increased to 2.5 gigs. When I did that last night it allowed me to save it once. But after I added the things to the image I needed it wouldn't save again :(
