```When you don't need Mathematica to remember anything for In[..] and Out[..] functionality, set \$HistoryLength, e.g., default value is Infinity. If you really don't need the In/Out functionality, use \$HistoryLength = 1.

Hi everyone.

I am analysing image data and I have the problem that after about 50
images or so Mathematica quits the calculation with the hint out of
memory. The interesting part of the code i wrote is :

(*Import the first image into Maxvals, which will be compared to all \
other images and overwritten if any point is found to be larger*)

SetDirectory[
"E:\\...];

Initialise = OpenRead["s2_260_0000.edf", BinaryFormat -> True];
MaxValues =
Table["UnsignedInteger16", {512}, {512}]];
counter = Dimensions[MaxValues];

(*Load all experimental images and perform maximum projection*)

MaxProjection[filename_] := {OpenRead[filename, BinaryFormat -> True],
Imagevalues =
For[i = 1, i <= counter[[1]], i++,
For [j = 1, j <= counter[[2]], j++,
If[MaxValues[[i, j]] >= Imagevalues[[i, j]],
MaxValues[[i, j]] = MaxValues[[i, j]],
MaxValues[[i, j]] = Imagevalues[[i, j]]]
]
], Close[Imagevalues]}

MaxProjection[#] & /@ FileNames@"*edf"

So I guess Mathm saves all the data of all the images after each
other. But once the comparision is done with the one MaxProjection
Image I want to have, all the data can be dumped from the memory and
then the next image can be compared with this MaxProjection image.

Does anyone have an idea? Thx.
