Affinity Designer: exported TIFF files can't be opened - size-dependent?

Recommended Posts


I've got an Affinity Designer file exceeding a certain size, say 12000 x 6000 px (about 102 x 51 cm / 300 dpi for printing on a canvas), only containing a rectangle. 
When exporting as TIFF the resulting file works fine with Affinity Photo, QuickTime Player 7 and Perfect Photo Suite 8, but it
can't be opened neither by OSX 10.11.5 preview app ("maybe the file is damaged or in an inappropriate format") nor by Photoshop 4 or Photoshop Elements 11 ("could not complete the command because there is not enough memory (RAM)" - although there's a lot of ...) or by the print shop's Photoshop CC.
On the other hand, a smaller sized file, say 10000 x 5000 px and less, works fine with all applications ... 
Bug or feature or do I miss something? ;-)
Kind regards,
