I read the size may be doubled on the dsp newsgroup ( nothing 100%).
Even if the size may be doubled, this is not adequate for image processing.
Maybe the mathworks should consider the idea of a "research version" that is an in between the student and the full verions ( a good price maybe $200).
Many are switching to Mathematica 3.0 since the student edition is not limited and runs even on linux ($140).
I hope the mathworks takes into consideration the making of a student edition with larger matrix size even if it costs more (but NOT the $500 for the full version).
