I've made a madnelbrot set generator in C and I've rendered a massive 100,000 square pixel image and its come out to be 30GBs big. My computer has 4GBs ram, how long should it take to load it? Thanks for the help.
It is impossible to load an uncompressed 30GB bitmap with only 4GB of RAM.
There may be a program that exists, similar to a text editor that can view a portion of a file at once, that can stream and view a portion of this image without loading it in it's entirety. I don't know of any specifically though.
I did something similar to this years ago, just checked and it was 7.5 gigapixels (yours is 10). Judging by what I wrote back then, it is possible to open such a large photo from within Photoshop, although mine created a 60GB temporary file, so you need some spare hard drive space.
I uplodaded it to a website dedicated to high resolution panoramas, although if you download similar software, it should hopefully work from your computer. Here's a link to the result I got, it's not the most ideal way of viewing a photo but it pretty much needs to be done for such large images - http://gigapan.com/gigapans/76165
Edit: Sorry, didn't quite realise how old the question was
