I think PSE 7 has the same limits that PSE 6 has:
Are your raw photos really exceeding those limits? What are their pixel dimensions and how much memory do you have installed? This article also explains how to override the limits.
This article lists the size limit as 30,000 x 30,000!! No, I'm not exceeding that. I have plenty of RAM. Most of my RAW files are 12-15mp.
The 30K x 30K limit is for the Editor, not the Organizer. The table in the article shows the limits based on the amount of memory you have installed, e.g. if you have 1 GB of memory the limit is 36 MP.
For one of the offending JPEGs, what does the Organizer show as the pixel dimensions in the Properties pane? How much memory do you have installed?
Hope this doesn't show up twice - I did the migration in the middle of my first reply and now don't see it. Anyway...
I have 4gb of RAM installed. One of the images in question is 27.8mp (7200 x 10800) which half of the maximum according to the TechNote. I'm also getting the broken thumbnail on many of my .CR2 files. Could the two problems be related?
(Argh, my first response to this was also lost my the user-id linking -- annoying.)
A 7200 x 10800 photo has 74 megapixels, not 27.8, which is more than the limit of 56 megapixels.
(7200 x 10800 = 77,760,000 pixels. 77,760,000 / (1024 * 1024) = 74 megapixels.)
I received this message after creating a Panoramic. I can view the Panaromic in the Editor but not in the Organizer. Just hope my local photo print company can print the Panoramic.
With larger RAM now common, one might think Adobe would set the viewing size based on the computers RAM.
Thank you VERY MUCH.

I have just started having this problem. When I crop an .nef file and try to save as a jpg, I get the File too large error back in organizer after closing the editor. I noticed that "someone or something" doubled the dimensions of the file?? I've cropped quite a few files the same way and they still come out 4288x2848 but this one was double. I have 8 gigs of memory and a terrabyte drive, so I don't think space is a problem. The .nef file is 13mb and the new .jpg is 9.5mb. I've done a catalog repair - it said no repair was needed. Is there some setting I've gotten changed to make the program keep the mb size but change the dimensions?
FYI - there is a registry change that can be made to allow
more memory to be allocated to the Organizer (apparently the size of the
file that can be viewed is limited by the memory availble to the Organizer).
The instructions used to be at
http://www.adobe.com/go/kb402760 however the link is "Unavailable".
Maybe someone is has an update. With OS 64 and more memory available, maybe the algorithm used to set up available memory in the registry should be modified?
Hi. Thanks for your help. I did look up the pixel dimensions and they were
the same. I believe the reason my pic was so large was that I had
inadvertently gotten 720dpi in my crop dimensions. When I set it back to
360dpi, everything worked as expected. I'll look into the registry issue as
My dimensions were something like 9288x4xxx (I've since deleted the photo), so it doesn't exceed the limits of editor or organizer. I had inadvertently set the dpi at 720 for an 11x14 crop, so maybe it was that. When I reset it to 360dpi, I didn't get the file too large error.

Hmm, when I try that using the crop tool in the Editor, the pixel dimensions remain the same, just the ppi is changing.
However, if you were really created an 11x14" image at 720 ppi (e.g. using the Resize command), then that would have 11 x 720 x 14 x 720 = 79,833,600 = 76.1 megapixels, which does exceed the limit.
Thanks John. That is exactly what I did. I didn't notice the 720dpi until
I'd tried several different pictures. It's really fascinating the detail in
this program - and your excellent knowledge!
