How to create and process images of very large size

Creating images of a very large size is a matter of proper software and the right choice of the image format. Image formats that are normally used for creating such images are: TIFF, BigTIFF, JPEG, and PSD . TIFF (as well as its specification BigTiff) is an uncompressed file format that is usually used for photographic images. TIFFs contain a large amount of information, and so it is presumed that you will want to print them at the highest quality setting possible so that the details will be fully translated onto paper. The size of the image saved in JPEG is limited by 32000 x 32000 pixels – it’s a lossy format which produces compressed images. PSD image files are very convenient for image editing and manipulation especially if the designer wants to apply various effects to different sections of an image. One can keep each section in a separate layer, work on each separate section and then merge all the layers to get the desired result. There are specialized programs that will help getting giant versions of your images, but processing such images is quite problematic. The graphics engine created exclusively by developers of ImageConverter Plus, makes it possible to create, convert, resize very large images, or do other types of image processing. Please note that we are not talking about images of several megabytes in size – we are talking about the ones that can be of several gigabytes!
