Looking to make a program that loads a large (12208 x 17438 pixels @ 400 dpi)*.tif file . I'm using and find that the performance of the picturebox control is extremely slow and memory hungry. Is there any way to speed things up using gdi+ or some other means? Don't need to process the picture, just need to view it on a form so that the user can look at it. Maybe make some zoom, pan, and print code later.
