      trying to move a picture and I get "could not complete the Move command because the result would be too big".  It is the only layer.

          What type of file are you working on?

            Seems like the file you are trying to move is really biggg!!!There is a limit of 30000 pixels on both width and height on fine and if you to File->new and create file of this size and then try to move it it would throw error.

             

            You can just look at your file dimensions from Image->Resize->Image Size and reduce to use tht tool.

              This is for version 13.1

               

              I am getting this error as well.  I am trying to combine an ~19,000x3600pixel photo with an ~10,000x3600 pixel photo.  I created a blank file 30,000x4000pixel to put the 2 photos together.  I paste the larger photo into the blank file and position it to the vert center and horiz left of the blank file.  I then paste the smaller picture into the new file.  It goes in at the center in its own layer as expected.  As soon as I try to move it left or right I get the above error message. I can move it ALL the way left and it will stay.

               

              Also if I just create the blank file and paste the larger file in it and move to the right or left by just a little (say with the cursor controls or mouse but move slightly) I get the error.  If I move all the way left it stays. If I move all the way right it gives an error BUT if I select undo move and redo move it goes to the right and stays.  I tried that with the small file but could not get it to stay right.
