I just tried to open an JPEG-image that is 35840x26880 pixels in size. And you may probably guess, I got an out of memory condition.

So I was wondering, if it would be possible to read jpegs while downscaling the image to the screen-resolution.

E.g. I have the above image. And view the entiere image in a view of (full screen) 1280x800 (wide). More pixel cannot be shown simultaniously on the screen.

My question now is if it would be possible to read images with this downscaling option to reduce memory usage while showing the image.

This should be possible with other image formats also.

Thank you for your answer.
