error message "JPEG image plug-in could not save image"
Hi everyone, thanks in advance for your help.

So I am making digital color prints at 24x30. the photography work is about color fields and gradients, so I need super high res files. I have set the size to 24000x30000 pix at 1000 dpi... now my problem, when i go to save the gimp file as a jpeg i get this error message "JPEG image plug-in could not save image"

any ideas or alternatives?

RE: error message "JPEG image plug-in could not save image"
I'm not doing my printing, and i'm just scared at $20 a pop I want to make sure I get the best quality photos I can. .I'm a starving artist and can't make mistakes that cost $20 each. when I upload the 800dpi files onto the site I'm printing from, it specifically tells me I should make the image a higher quality.

I don't understand why the computer will allow me to save the giant xcf but not the jpeg I have disk space and an external hard drive, this just has me stumped. It's not a fancy computer or anything, just a store bought e-machine, I didn't upgrade it or anything.
