    Just invested on a new XPS 400 Dual Core Pentium D from Dell with 2GB RAM and 250GB HardDrive

    I am creating a mural which is 8feet x 10feet.
    I have just set the work area and guides and no images yet, but, i am unable to save the file at this stage itself. It says "could not save because the document is bigger than 2GB".

    Can somebody help me with this ASAP. I have a deadline.

    Reduce the resolution of your image. A printed wall poster only needs a resolution of 30dpi (max) as it will be viewed from several feet/meters away. Incidently you would be better off posting these types of queries to a dedicated GD forum such as where the people there are better placed to talk on print design issues.
