How can I save large files in IrfanView?

I always get a lot of messages “File to large to save”. How can I increase the size of files I can save in IrfanView? They download to my computer OK and I can move them into another file folder, I just can’t save some in files I have for organization.

    Could your file be too large for the available RAM memory on your computer? This is a common reason for error messages of this type. Another reason I can think of is that IrfanView has some problems (or it
    doesn't support) with compression. That's what I learnt from the
    IrfanView forum. Maybe you can try opening it in some other application like MS Paint or Photoshop and see if it works. You will be able to see if the error is Irfanview specific only.
