<x-flowed>hi list,

i am not sure if this is actually a TeX on OS X problem, but anyway.

i am using tetex/pdftex latest version together with TeXShop.
everything works quite well, but now i got a document with a lot of 

after about 200 images tex says goodbye .. :-(

i am using the graphicx package and including each image like:


this is what the logfile says:

<use images/models/0.95_0.0005_0.35_0.07_0.75_0.07/19990910193254000.jpg>
id=207, 11
2.42pt x 150.5625pt>
<use images/models/0.95_0.001_0.35_0.07_0.75_0.07/19990910193254000.jpg>
! TeX capacity exceeded, sorry [pool size=65067].
<argument> ...age \endcsname {\the \ht \@tempboxa
\driver at release >5...
l.555 ....35_0.07_0.75_0.07/19990910193254000.jpg}
!  ==> Fatal error occurred, the output PDF file not finished!

it seems to me that TeX assigns some id to each image, and this buffer 
than gets full, right?

is there a way to use more images without changing to another way of 
including images?
( i got used to the graphicx package and i like it.. )

thanks, martin.
