@tindex max-image-size
This variable is used to define the maximum size of image that Emacs
will load. If its value is a floating point number, that number is
multiplied by the width and height of the selected frame, in pixels,
to give the maximum image width and height. Emacs will refuse to load
and display any image that is larger than this.
The purpose of this variable is to prevent unreasonably large images
from accidentally being loaded into Emacs. It only takes effect the
first time an image is loaded. Once an image is placed in the image
cache, it can always be displayed, even if the value of
@var{max-image-size} is subsequently changed (@pxref{Image Cache}).
