They're too large for QuickTime to handle.  If we were to ask QuickTime to load those particular images, QuickTime would crash Photo Mechanic.  So instead of crashing, we mark those images as unsupported.

For 16-bit PSD the width can't be wider than 5461 pixels.  Anything higher and QuickTime will crash Photo Mechanic.

HTH,
