Hi Helene,

if someone has problems with your file and cannot find any other ugly thing, he can use this recommendation to fight with you. That is the problem, not a bigger strip.

Today you get no benefit from stripped. Most viewers will load the whole image and then a monolithic images can be loaded faster.

At 1992 ( the writing date of revision 6.0 ) we would happy with 16 MB RAM; today we are very angry with 128 MB RAM.

If you will handle big images( > ~ DIN A0 400 dpi 1 bpp or DIN A4 400 dpi 24 bpp ) tiled is better then stripped ( but most viewers do not support it in the right way).
