Hi Mike,

I am aware of this, but have not found the best solution yet. Since annotations have been introduced the memory consumption has increased because the annotations are drawned on the displayed graphic, so the displayed graphic cannot be for example, black and white.

It has been suggested to use TImage directly but then you lose the features of the TImageScrollBox.

The ideal solution is to break down the image into tiles and only work with it one "tile" at a time, but this is very complex, for displaying and applying transformations.

A possible option is to have an option in TImageScrollBox to work in a more lightweight mode, without annotations and possibly removing some other features. Or, another display component with less features. What are you requirements?

Best regards,
