Do you really need full page bitmap graphics? I calculated pixel size of 
your image and I got cca 144Mpix. Thus raw size of your image will be 
probably about a few GB - depending on bit depth.

Which format do ÿou use and which is filesize of image? Do you have no 
troubles when working with image in bitmap editor (Gimp, Photosphop...)?
