ABOUT LOW RAM WARNINGS. Compared to computers, devices such as the iPad, iPhone and iTouch have very little RAM to do their processing in. RAM is short for random access memory. The available RAM is not the same as the available Capacity which you see in your device Settings.
If you are dealing with very large images then low RAM can be a problem, and apps running in the background can cause it. For example you may have copied a large image with the Photos application. Apps are likely to run slowly or crash in low RAM situations.
An easy way to fix the problem is to stop and then restart the device. (Hold down the Sleep button until a red button appears etc) . Unfortunately this means that any apps you have running, including those in the background, will quit. After restarting the device you would have to restart those apps you need.
In JpgStory, with freshly cleaned RAM, it is possible to caption an image which has a resolution of at least 3072x2304. However JpgStory limits the maximum resolution of any captioned pic to 1024x1228 so starting with a higher resolution pic would simply slow down the app, rather than change the output resolution.
