I'm trying to scale an image up to more than 10,000 pixels high, but it seems that there is a limit of 10,000 x 10,000 pixels?  Is there a way to override this?

I'm sure that must be SnagIt's upper limit. Your question made me curious so I loaded a 1,000 x 1,000 pixel image into SnagIt and tried to increase it's height by 1 pixel. I couldn't even do that.



Photoshop Elements is a low feature version of Photoshop and it has a limit of 10,000 pixels or so as well.

Currently, I cannot create larger than  300,000 x 300,000 pixel images in Photoshop CC.
Every program has it's limits.

There is a product called PhotoZoom that specifically handles graphics scaling and does it extremely well. If you want to scale a  photo up to wall size even that has limits on JPG files and will ask for another file type such as a TIF .. but there are options to do that within the program (pick up a jpg file , blow it up and save as a TIF for instance)  If you do a lot of that sort of thing you might want to take a look at it

Thanks.  This is a one-off for me so I can't really justify the cost of PhotoZoom; will look for some freeware (I also need something that converts RGB to CMYK).
