Limits of a TImage component

I am using a TImage component in my Delphi 1 application running on under Windows 98 and with a Pentium III 450 with 8mb video card.

Some images that I display will generate a run time error "Out of system resources".  I can display a 447x298 size image at 24-bit color depth just fine, but displaying a 545x411 size image at 24-bits will generate the error.

If I convert the 545x411 images to 256 colors, then the error will not occur.

What is going on here, and is there some way to know what the image limits are with a TImage?

I think the limitations are done by 16bit...
