Size of Folders containing Images - Limits
Note: All images in are loaded into memory (for speed), so you are bound by the memory of your machine and other apps running. So if this app crashes (there is no harm done if it does), it just loaded too many images from that directory.
Work-around: Try closing your other applications first. If that is not an option, create a new directory and copy images into that directory and remove an image one-by-one until it works for you computer and situation.
Images nowadays can be extremely large given the advent of 14 Mega-pixel cameras, produce a image of size 14 Mb on disk. Therefore, 1 Gig of memory will hold roughly 73 pictures of 14 Mb each. 2 Gigs holds approx. 146 pictures. 4 Gigs holds approx. 292 pictures. 8 Gigs holds approx. 584 pictures. 16 Gigs holdsapprox. 1,168 large pictures.
