I have four TIFF images each ~20Mb (around 75000px by 45000 px). I want to import all four in Illustrator, color them in CMYK (weird that Illustrator shows they are around 800px by 500px) then press on transparency, Multiply.
However, the file size given by Illustrator is 1.7GB and I cannot print them because Illustrator keeps crashing.
Any idea how I can reduce the TIFF files so I can do things in Illustrator and print without crashing? Maybe there is another technique?
