    Michael,

    What are the dimensions and requested image rez of the TIFF? What mode, RGB
    or CMYK

    Would the dimensions, colour depth and image rez create a file size in
    excess of 2 gigs?

    The doent size is 36" x 60"
    The croped area I'd like to output is 24"x48".
    The file is RGB and I'm selecting CMYK when exporting as a tiff.
    It works when I select a screen image (72 dpi) not 150 or 300.
    I don't think the file would be over 500 meg.
    Thank you.
    Mike
    It just worked if I kept the RGB mode when exporting?
    I'll see how it prints? The resultant file was 100 megs.
    Thank you.
    I don't understand why there would be size limitations.
    Cheers

    Michael,

    A 24 x 48" at 300ppi CMYK is going to create a 395.5 meg file in memory, and
    the 36" x 60" would be 741.6 megs.

    Add to that the Illustrator application and O/S overheads and you probably
    are running out of RAM.

    RGB would decrease file sizes by 25%

    Why do not you just open (and rasterize) your illustration with photoshop?
