I am trying to attach multiple raster images totaling around 1 GB of data. The rasters are aerial images that were taken from NearMaps. I am having trouble with how slowly the rasters are loading. It can take up to 15 minutes for a few rasters to load, and I have never gotten all of the rasters to load (50 images) at the same time.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can get these aerials to load faster?
Thanks in advance.
what product are you using ? what version ? how are the rasters being attached ? what format are the rasters ?

Well there are some raster resources (memory) settings. 50 1g rasters will be a workout, I would suggest separate files or models, maybe 10 or 20 raster each, then reference those to the production documents. You'll also want a strong PC, preferably 64-bit windows with at least 16 gb memory. 32+ even better, beefy GPU will help as well. When you attach the things, set your view somewhere out of the way, so it doesn't need to display them until they're all in there.

I'm using Microstation V8i with Geopak SS3. The rasters are in jpeg format, and are being attached through the Raster Manager with a sister file.
I apologize, the total of all of the pictures is about 1 GB, not per picture.

How much physical memory is installed on your computer? What operating system? What bit-ness (32-bit or 64-bit)?
