Re: filmscanners: Cannot open scanned TIFF in Photoshop
A shot in the dark - is Insight saving the TIFF as a compressed TIFF?

Subject: filmscanners: Cannot open scanned TIFF in Photoshop
| Hello list,
| I finally got an SS4000 and (after some SCSI trouble) did the first scan.
| For the life of me, I cannot get the TIFF saved by Insight to open in
| The file is 108MB big. I have 1GB of RAM. Photoshop 5.5 can use 75%, which
| amounts to 690M. I have two scratch disks defined, one has 4GB free, the
| other has 55GB free (and that space is defragmented and really unused.) My
| windows swap file is 2.5GB large. I still get the error 'Could not open
| document because there is not enough memory (RAM).'
| An image scanned at 3000dpi (62MB) would not open, either. One scanned at
| 2000dpi (27M)opens. PS tells me that this file uses scr: 41M/690M. And: I
| can open 4 copies of this 27MB file (amounting to 108MB) without error
| message. This just does not make sense!
| I even trashed photoshop.ini and the prefs file - no change.
| Does anyone have an idea what either I am doing wrong or what's wrong with
| photoshop? Or what's wrong with Insight? (Version 5.0.3, just downloaded).
| Best regards, Barbara
