I have gimp2.8.2, windows 7. I'm working in my personal proyect with a *.png file about 22MBytes.
I'm making layers,but each time I make a layer the size of the file *.xcf increase in 2MBytes. Now my proyect has 83MBytes but I have to make another 40 layers !! It's going to be so big!!!
And it eat all the resources of my laptop,it's crashing quite often as well.
Why can I do?
