Error 5119 - Insufficient memory to load file

Trying to open a 1.5GB png file. What parameter needs to be changed in advanced preferences to open such a file?
Thank you Martin

I don't think anything in the Avanced preferences will really help. However, try turning off 'undo' in Options | Viewing | Editing and that might save a bunch of memory.

What are the actual pixel dimensions and bitdepth of the image? Multiply those figures and you will know how much memory is required. 1.5 GB does sound excessively large though, especially if that's a compressed file.
