Hey All,

I'm trying to create a large bitmap image...
Bitmap bitmap = new Bitmap(width * colums, rows * heigh);

Open in new window

But I getting the following: Parameter is not valid.

I don't think that image is too big for Bitmap and I can't see on MSDN if there is a limit to the max size?

Did you try

Bitmap bitmap = new Bitmap(16384,15360);

Are you sure that all your variables are set ?

Yes, I just tried with a smaller Bitmap and it works. Which is a shame, now i need to split out the images or buy a new computer :S I really need to compile all these small images into one big one.

Let me slightly change the question. I have 2200~ small images, 256x256. They are one big image split into smaller ones they all fit together like a jiigsaw to make one big image which I'm trying to do.

I have the algorithm to put them together its a problem creating a bitmap big enough in memory to hold it before being saved.

Do you/anyone have any idea's on how to do this? "Get more memory" isn't an option, I tried with a 12GB PC and get the same.
