Background Images

Versions of ADE up to and including 1.47 do not handle background images very effectively. This issue should be fixed in the version from 1.50 onwards.

If you experience sluggish behavior with images in 1.47 then it might help to keep images small (up to 100k). Also problems arise when the display is zoomed in above 100% (1.0 in the status bar). The problem is worse when rotating an image. It may also help therefore to use Right Click > Zoom to set a low zoom, make your rotation and then zoom back in. Using the right Click Zoom to get near to your desired level will also help.

Note that you can also experience the OOM error (above) with Background Images.

We hope that this issues will be fixed in 1.50.

EDITADE 1.50 is now released and we hope that this has improved the handling of background images
