In my app I need to load a really big image file (around 5000 x 3000 pixels, 1.4MB). The application hangs whenever I try to load it, although it works correctly with smaller size images (I've tried 1200 x 1000, never tried larger images). So does anyone know the limit size of an image that iPhone can load? Is there any workaround (like divide the image into smaller squares, then put them together <-- this will make scrolling a bit harder though)? Thank you.
